Monplaisir, Guy (   –   )


158. Cap–Haitien Scene
c1997 (20x24)

Nothing known: just liked it.
   Monplaisir included 'Cap–Haitien' in his signature–bloc; and this is a scene typical of Le Cap artists who depict their generally beautiful hometown: it is rich and meticulous in detail.

125. La Sirène, Agoué, and Their Family_
c1985 (24x32)

 

     Born in Gonaïves, Mompremier began painting in 1973 as a student of Gérard Valcin. I've seen many of his works in galleries: nearly all have been colorful vodou interpretations, often with La Sirène, Agoué, or both. A superb artist, his works have been exhibited widely in the Caribbean, in Europe, and in the U.S.

     Normil, André (1934–2014)


88. 'Haïti. Vive la difference.'_
c1985 (poster: 27x24)

 

   The Haitian Tourist Agency commissioned Port–au–Prince native André Normil to paint the work that became the Agency's promotional poster.
   I once had a fine original by Normil quite similar to that in the print. I sold it — and should not have.
   The small Normil 'Fresco Vendor' was obtained in an auction.
