Originally from Nice, born in 1934 to a jeweler father and a militant communist mother, today Danielle Jacqui lives her passion and has created a successful career from it. Established in Pont de l'Etoile in her somewhat surprising home, which serves as studio, museum and living space, this fascinating painter and ceramic artist arouses everyone’s curiosity. As one of the most iconic artists of her time, she makes art brut she qualifies as “different” and which allows her to escape and unleash her creative vitality, which she has been exploring for the past 40 years.
Brightly colored ceramics, sculptures, self-portraits, mosaics, embroidery, bas-relief dolls and animals... Her many creations invade every room of her house, from the kitchen to living room, and even cover the facade. Here, the place is jam-packed with every square meter crammed with one of her sculptures. Open to the public, the home of Danielle Jacqui (known locally as "she who paints") offers visitors a unique and intriguing journey that should not be missed!
