A legend in his country, Hyppolite is known for his aesthetically intricate yet highly intuitive paintings. Using chicken feathers and his fingers as well as brushes, Hyppolite produced a body of work of remarkable richness and complexity. He died in 1948 at the peak of his fame, leaving a legacy that has inspired a whole school of Haitian painting. His art collected and exhibited around the world never ceases to awe the global art world. The Musée du College St Pierre, and the Foundation of Marie & Georges S. Nader in Haiti, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Smithsonian Institution, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the Museum of Everything in London display his exceptional and unique art.
