Gourgue had his own distinguishable style, featuring the Haitian mountains, skeletal trees, peasants and their huts, and Vodou symbolism in a surrealistic way. His art was exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art in N.Y, including at the Sotheby and Christies auction houses, 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).
