"The washerwomen" *** 60 x 75 cm ***

Born in 1944 in Port-au-Prince, Claude Dambreville married the daughter of Pétion Savain, a painter of the first generation. After attending high school and then radio, he frequented artists and enrolled at the art center. It was at the age of 34 that he began painting seriously. He also wrote a lot, and in 1983 received the Deschamps Prize for "Un goût de fiel".

He lives in the USA, not to mention his homeland. He paints mostly women, long white or blue silhouettes selling their products at the market. Turbans, hats and baskets enhance the pastel tones of their outfits. Vertical and draped lines, the architecture is solid and calm.

Dambreville, whose painting is too scholarly to be classified as naïve, has long since achieved international notoriety. Well Haitian by birth, heart, sensitivity, he exhibits everywhere and is appreciated by collectors.
