Collection: Philomé Obin (Cap-Haitian, 1891-1986)

Philomé Obin was born in Limbe in 1891 and died in Cap Haitian in 1986. He was self-taught and was one of the first Haitian artists who marveled at the world with his naive art. His art is referred in all major books on Haitian art and mentioned by many art critics internationally. " Obin's concerns with precision and the respect of reality injects a measure of coldness into his narrative works," says Gerald Alexis in his book "Peintres Haitiens." Get the Book Now! Please scroll down to make your selection(s)!
