About this artist

Jacques E. Gourgue was born in Port-au-Prince in 1931 and died in 1996. He was undisputedly the leading figure in modern Haitian painting, and he joined the Centre d"art in 1947. Gourgue had a different style, featuring the Haitian mountains, skeletal trees, peasants and their huts, and Vodou symbolism in a surrealistic manner. His art was exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art in N.Y., including at the Sotheby and Christies auction houses in Europe, North America, and Latin America. "Gourgue's determination enabled him to become a master of Expressionism through his drawing, light, and color effect" (Peintres Haitiens, Gerald Alexis). Get the Book Now!" "Gourgue's work reflects an anguished man's sense of the tragic." ( Peinture Haitienne). ( Peintres Haitiens, Gerald Alexis)
