About this artist

Peterson Laurent was born in 1888 and died in 1958 in Saint-Marc, Haiti. His favorite themes were scenes of rural scenes, American battleships, still life subjects, roosters, fish and vases of flowers, and Voodoo. The distinctive mark of his style is the basic limning of figures which are then filled in with light paint strokes. Laurent was a member of the Art Center, and though his career was brief, his work is widely known. He enjoyed calling himself “Le Forgeron” (the Blacksmith) and even signed some of his paintings. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien du College Saint-Pierre in Port-au-Prince and the Milwaukee Museum of Art.
