Louisiane St. Fleurant

Posted by: frank in News Add comments

Louisiane St. Fleurant (1924 – 2005) was one of the great artists in Haiti through most of the late 20th century.  I had the rare priviledge of meeting her, and going to her home in Petionville, Haiti a few years ago, and she was a delight to meet and speak with.  Louisiane was one of the founding memebers of the Saint-Soleil painting group in the 1970’s, and the gallery has shown her work since we opened our doors.

This painting, “Trois Filles”, 1987, is very typical of both the high quality and quite magical feeling of so many of her paintings.
