Lebreton Herve (Haitian, b.1941)
Renowned artist, Herve Lebreton was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on 27 March 1941. At the age of nine, he made his studies in fine arts and painting in particular. He continued his training at the School of Arts of Port-au-Prince and the ABC school in Paris and at the Bellas Artes in Santiago, Chile. The paintings with which he shapes his individuality and the singular of a language readily testify to the ultimate fulfillment. His style is defined as Neo or para-surrealist with a reigning idyllic quality. His works are often presented in solo and sometimes in group exhibitions. Lebreton's work appears in several major collections such as the Museum of Modern Art in Santo Domingo, the Museum of Fine Arts in Shreveport, Louisiana, Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal and the National Museum of the Pantheon in Haiti. It is also present in many private collections in Europe, the United States, Central and South America.
