She can be seen as one of the most surprising women of French painting of the 20th century. She is an original, born in the United States under the name Jacqueline Beam. Then, early on, she came to rub along with Paris, international art capital until the end of the fifties. This is why she went under the pseudonym Lucienne de Meiffren, capable of reviving a threatened society, both frivolous and enchanted. In 1969, she was still exhibiting at the Salon des Indépendants. She liked seaside resorts, Dinard and Biarritz, which she accompanied with light and vibrant watercolours, still looked for by collectors.
