This original 40"x50" painting is titled "Caraibes" & signed "Legagneur" at the back by the famous Haitian contemporary Haitian painter Jean-Claude Legagneur. It is an acrylic on canvas, unframed, and in excellent condition. It belongs in the private collection of an art collector in Texas, who bought it in 2005 from the artist's ex-wife, Michaelle. She said Legagneur did not sign the front since he had painted it for her and did not want it sold.

About this artist

Jean-Claude Legagneur is a famous figurative master painter from Haiti. His self-developed style combines a nuance of Impressionism, Pop Art, and Abstractionism. He painted the American Airlines Mural at JFK Airport and was the featured Haitian artist at Art Basel Miami 2013. “Legagneur’s subtle painting displays a remarkable sense of color” (Gerald Alexis, art critic). His suggested relation between shade and light, the technique of distribution of colors, and the deterioration of the nuances confer to his canvases sweetness, harmony, serenity, and especially an elegance that recalls the big classics. His apparent preferred human figurative style does not limit him. Lately, he has developed a new production of oversized portraits that capture human expressions at their best.
