Fernand Pierre (1919-2002) 36"x48" Animals in Forest Oil on Canvas #82-3-96HA
This is a lovely jungle scene with several animals signed by the late Haitian artist Fernand Pierre. It is a vintage piece sold unframed and As-Is. Fernand Pierre was born on July 1, 1919 in Carrefour, Haiti and he died in 2002. Employed as engraver, Pierre began working in clay, fashioning little dogs and selling them. In 1947 he heard of the Art Center and traded a few of his clay dogs for some plaster. Then he asked for hardboard and paint, set to work, and became a professional artist. Pierre has taken part in several exhibitions in Haiti and the United States. One of his works is displayed at the Episcopal Church in Port-au-Prince. (Peinture Haitienne/ Haitian Arts by Marie-José Nadal & Gérald Bloncourt, Editions Nathan, 1986) “With an innate feel for composition, Pierre celebrates nature and depicts it in all its bounty”. (Peintres Haitiens by Gérald Alexis, Editions Cercle d’Art, 2000)
