Andre Pierre (1914-2005) 16"x24" Ogoun, Erzulie Freda & Baron Samedi Oil on Canvas #1PM
Self-taught Haitian master painter Andre Pierre was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in 1914 and passed away in 2005. He is considered one of Haiti's greatest artists and, as the pre-eminent painter of the Haitian spirits, the worthy successor of noted Hector Hyppolite. His artworks have been reproduced in many books on naive and religious art. He injects rhythms into his works through lines and colors, says Gerald Alexis in his book Peintres Haitiens.
