Collection: Stivenson Magloire (Haitian, 1963-1994)

Stivenson Magloire was born on August 16, 1963, in Petionville, Haiti. His mother was the Saint-Soleil School painter Louisianne St. Fleurant. His paintings are expressionistic, populated with bizarre people, birds, and symbols. He was stoned to death in broad daylight on October 9, 1994, by personal enemies during the chaos that accompanied Haiti's first days of the US occupation. Gérald Alexis, in his book titled “Peintres Haitiens,” refers to him as “unlike his sister refused to join the Saint-Soleil Movement.” His art is widely collected and is on display at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport, Iowa.
