On Demand Webinar

In this webinar on Haitian Art, Dr. Tom Folk, AAA
will discuss nine important artists from the Caribbean
nation of Haiti, artists who have not received the
marketplace attention they seem to deserve. Also to be
discussed are the notable museum collections and
galleries that include Haitian Art, including the 
Museum and the Detroit Institute of Art.

The lecture will focus on the early development
(ca. 1940-1980)  of the following nine artists:

1.     Hector Hyppolite, 1894-1948

2.     Philomene Obin, 1892-1986

3.     Wilson Bigaud, 1931-2010

4.     Castere Bazile, 1923-1966

5.     Rigaud Benoit, 1911-1986

6.     Robert Saint-Brice, 1893-1973

7.     Jacques Enguerrand Gourgue, 1930-1996

8.     Prefete Duffaut, 1923-2012

9.     The sculptor Georges Liautaud, 1899-1991

Dr. Tom Folk, AAA's webinar will feature a personal
point of view as his parents were major collectors of
Haitian art.  He has many stories to share on the subject.
