Jacques-Enguerrand Gourgue (1931-1996) 6"x4" The Drum, The Tree & The Owl Oil on Board Collector's Item #1PM
This tiny vintage piece is a collector's item, a must-have painted by Jacques-Enguerrand Gourgue, one of Haiti’s most renowned painters of the 20th century!
"Gourgue's determination enabled him to become a master of Expressionism through his drawing, light and color effects." (Peintres Haitiens by Gerald Alexis).
Jacques-Enguerrand Gourgue was born in Port-au-Prince in 1931 and died in 1996. He was undisputedly the leading figure in modern Haitian painting. He joined the Centre d"art in 1947.
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's and Christie's auction houses, Europe, North America, and Latin America.
