  13. Are works on canvas more valuable than the works on mason-board?

    No.... the medium does not influence the dollar value. Some of the oldest and rarest pieces were done on cardboard. The medium just reflects the choice of the artist at the time the work was done.

  14. Why are there so many artists in Haiti?

    Haiti was first settled for the sake of harvestingits abundant natural forests... in particular the mahogany for the furniture in Europe and the mast heads ofsailing ships. The African people that were forciblyenslaved and brought to Hispanolia were, in many cases, artisanswith the specific task of sculpting the wood into works of art. These talents were handed down from parent to child until even today it is not unusual for family of artists to achieve recognition.

  15. Haiti is such a poor country. If I purchase a painting how much does the artist get?

    It is true that economically Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world but they are rich artistically. If an artist works hard and achieves recognition it can be his step out of the cycle of poverty... some even compare sports in the United States to art in Haiti... a way for anyone with talent to excel.

    Any artist that works with a gallerydoes so on a percentage basis. We deal directly with the artistshowcasing, advertising and promoting their works.
