Néhémy Jean was born in 1931 and died in 2007. Well-educated at the Teacher Training School, the Beaubrun Ardouin College, and Lycee Alexandre Petion, he joined the Centre d'Art in 1947 under the auspices of Dieudonne Cédor. He was one of Foyer des Arts Plastiques Gallery's founding members, where fifty members seceded from the Centre d'Art in 1950. He improved his pictorial techniques under V. Pierre-Noel and Georges Ramponeau, his portraiture under R. Brackman and B. Klonis in N.Y.C. He returned to Haiti to help found the Brochette Art Gallery and later his own L'Atelier Gallery. He painted scenes in the airport of Haiti, El Rancho, and Choucoune Hotels. He has exhibited in the U.S., Europe, and the Surinam. His arts hang in many private collections.
