This book, by internationally renown author Gérald Alexis is an essential addition to Haitian art literature. Alexis, a specialist in Caribbean and Latino-American Art, with an emphasis on Haitian art, considers four major categories that reflect a diversity of expressions: Portrait and Historical Paintings, Nature and Daily Life, Voodoo – its’ Rhythm and Structure, and Figuration-Abstraction. He explores the links between Haitian paintings, history, artistic, and cultural traditions, including the remarkable development in the years that followed the creation of the Centre d’Art in 1944. Included in this work are artist biographies and photos and an extensive bibliography. Containing 304 Pages with more than 300 full color reproductions, it is the ultimate reference book on Haitian art.
