Painter and printmaker Yvonne Jacquette is best known for her shimmering nightscapes of New York City, seen from the aerial perspective of skyscrapers, helicopters, and airplanes. She has also taken to the skies, often in chartered aircrafts, to paint landscapes in Maine and Utah from above. In addition to her paintings, Jacquette frequently collaborated with her late husband, the photographer and filmmaker Rudy Burckhardt, who was also known for his depictions of the urban environment. Jacquette has exhibited at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Detroit Institute of the Arts, the Brooklyn Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Museum of the City of New York, among other institutions, and has received awards from the National Academy and the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
