Etienne, Jean-Bernard (Haitian, b. 1952)
Self-taught artist, Jean-Bernard Etienne was born in 1952 at Gonaives, Haiti. He acquired a passion for painting at a very early age. He paints in the expressionist style and his natural abilities shine through in each of his works. He's known for his dramatic portraits of young women and children with faces with innocence and serenity. "Etienne turns to an idealised style to describe the innocence of childhood" (Peintres Haitiens by Gerald Alexis). Get the Book Now!
