About this artist

Jean-Baptiste Bottex was the elder brother of the better-known Seymour Bottex. He is a naive painter specializing in biblical topics and daily scenes from Haitian life. He exhibited locally at the Art Center and abroad (Peinture Haitienne by Marie Jose Nada & Gerald Bloncourt, Editions Nathan, 1986). Jean-Baptiste worked with the famous Haitian pioneer artist Philome Obin, though little influence of Obin's 'northern school' is evident in his work. He later maintained an atelier of his own with his brother S.E Bottex, training artists.
