"Is Jacquemin a Landscapist? Of course, he is and he does not deny it. But he is also one of the best Portraitists ever (…) . His portraits are depicted with surprising sobriety and striking truth. The artist found inspiration while travelling as a pilgrim. Nothing could escape him. For a child, the face is angelic, for a young girl it is pure, for a farmer, it is craggy, for a town crier it is mocking, for a drunkard seeking the third dimension, it is weird, for a gourmet, it is satisfied, for a prefect of the congregation it is full of unction. He captures features and attitudes everywhere, at a concert, in a Crown court and very often on trains..."
