This is an original museum piece signed by the late Haitian Master artist, Philome Obin (1892-1986) that belongs to the collection of Marie & Georges S. Nader. This 18"x22" painting on board depicts a woman in blue walking on a deserted street in Cap Haitien. The painting is entitled "Rue Petit-Fort St-Michel de la Petite-Anse".
Obin was born in Limbe in 1891 and died in Cap Haitian in 1986. He was self taught and was one of the first Haitian artists who marveled the world with his naive art. His art is referred in all major books on Haitian art and mentioned by many art critics internationally. " Obin's concerns with precision and the respect of reality, injects a measure of coldness into his narrative works" says Gerald Alexis in his book "Peintres Haitiens". Get the Book Now!
