Don Jacot

Don Jacot (b. 1949, Chicago, Illinois; d. 2021, San Francisco, California) is known for his larger-than-life sized paintings of tin toys and precisely depicted vintage urban landscapes. Initially influenced by Charles Bell’s still lifes, in his later years, Jacot developed a completely new take on Photorealism by combining still life and landscape. Using archival photographs of mid-twentieth-century cities, scale model vehicles, and photographs of vintage signage as source material, Jacot created his own historically accurate compositions of the ’30s and ’40s.

Jacot began exhibiting his work regularly in the 1980s; his paintings are held in many public collections in Detroit. He received his B.A. from University of Illinois, Champaign and his B.S. from Mercy College of Detroit.
