Hide Profile

Jared French, a painter who specialized in the medium of egg tempera, was part of a circle of friends and colleagues, including Paul Cadmus and George Tooker, sometimes referred to as magic realists. French received a B.A. degree from Amherst College in 1925 before moving to New York City, where he befriended Cadmus. He married artist Margaret Hoening in 1937 and, with Cadmus, they formed the PaJaMa photographic collective. French relocated to Italy in 1961, where he remained until his death in 1988.
