Prosper Pierre-Louis (19471997), was a Haitian artist, painter; and one of the main contributors to the local school of the Saint Soleil art movement. His paintings depicting mystical Vodou Loas and spirits are especially noteworthy. Pierre-Louis was born on October 12, 1947, in Bainet, near Jacmel, Haiti. He did not have any formal schooling, but taught himself to play the drums and the violin. As a child he assisted his father, a houngan, in preparing Haitian Vodou ceremonies. At the age of 16 he moved to Port-au-Prince. There he took a number of odd jobs. Later while working as a waiter at the home of Maud Robard he joined the “Saint Soleil” peasant commune (organized by the latter) which united a variety of poor artists including singers, dancers, craftsmen, and painters into the movement. Prosper followed Maude to the community at Soisson-la-Montagne on the mountain above LaBoule and eventually became the most prominent painter in the group. The Saint Soleil group disbanded after only a few years but five of the artists, Prosper, Levoy Exil, Denis Smith, Dieuseul Paul, and Louisiane Saint Fleurant reorganized into the group “Cinq Soleils”. After years of labor Prosper’s technique greatly evolved and he become a prominent and respected member of the local art community. His flourishing career came to an abrupt end when he died prematurely of an asthma attack in November 1997. From the prestigious collection of Raymond Olivier. Over 20 years old art work, may show signs of age like minor cracks in paint and stains on back side. Overall condition is good. Large canvas 30″ X 40″ (Acrylic). À la suite de son voyage en 1975 en Haïti, qui sera aussi son dernier, André Malraux décide de consacrer un chapitre entier de son livre L’intemporel – la Métamorphose des Dieux édité chez Gallimard en 1976 au mouvement Saint Soleil. Évidemment l’ouvrage contribue de manière foudroyante à la reconnaissance mondiale de ces artistes perdus au milieu d’Haïti. Malraux illustre une pleine page de son livre avec une uvre de Levoy Exil et ose même écrire page 330 Picasso voulait que ses tableaux du Palais des Papes atteignissent la liberté qu’atteint celui de Levoy Exil parce que le peintre haïtien ignore la peinture des autres. Mais ces tableaux d’Avignon sont manifestement des uvres professionnelles du XXe siècle postérieures au cubisme, et dont la frénésie d’échapper à l’art appartient à celui-ci, alors que le peintre haïtien ne tente pas d’échapper à un englobant qu’il ignore. Malraux est impressionné par la force et la qualité des uvres de Saint-Soleil qu’il trouve très proche de l’art brut.

ORIGINAL ACRYLIC PAINTING ON CANVAS BY THE LATE MASTER LOUISIANE ST FLEURANT B. SHE WAS ONE OF THE FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE FAMOUS ART MOVEMENT CALLED SAINT SOLEIL AND ALSO MOTHER OF FAMOUS ARTIST THE LATE STIVENSON MAGLOIRE. LOUISIANE PASSED AWAY IN 2005. WORK SIZE 24″ X 20″ (peinture sur toile) MORE FROM WIKIPEDIA: Louisiane Saint Fleurant (19242005) was a Haitian female artist and painter. She was a founder of the peasant Saint Soleil art movement. Saint Fleurant’s paintings often depict primitive maternal scenes of females, children, trees, wildlife, and Haitian Vodou Loas. Her folk painting style is often colorful and vibrant and expresses a distinct female perspective on the Saint Soleil movement and Haitian Vodou art. Louisiane Saint Fleurant was born on September 11, 1924, in Petit-Trou-de-Nippes, Haiti. Along with Prospere Pierre-Louis, Dieuseul Paul, Denis Smith, and Levoy Exil she formed the renowned Cinq Soleil (Five Suns) art movement. The Five Suns group formed out of the Saint Soleil movement, of which Louisiane was the only female artist. She is affectionately called the godmother of the art movement. She was not formally trained in art and began painting only in her late 40s. Louisiane was originally introduced to the Saint Soleil art community as a peasant cook and after receiving some direction from Jean-Claude Garoute, she started her practice in painting and sculpture.  Louisiane is the mother of five children including the renowned artist Stevenson Magloire. She painted and sculpted for 30 years until the age of 80 when poor vision precluded her ability to continue in 2002. Saint Fleurant died in her home on June 1, 2005. A second tragedy hit her family when the cemetery where she was buried was bulldozed following the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Her work has been exhibited in Asia, Europe, and the United States and has recently been part of fundraising, relief, and awareness efforts following the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Louisiane Saint Fleurant’s folk paintings are well regarded by collectors for their unique manifestations of motherhood and her female perspective on Haitian and Vodou folk art.
