A painter of landscapes, flowers and portraits, Jacqueline Cantenat studied under Paul Quinsac at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux and her first recorded painting publically exhibited was at the Salon de L’Atelier in 1929. She continued to draw inspiration for her work from the pay-basque region of S.W. France as well as the countryside around the city of Rouen.
