Medium:  Acrylic on Canvas

Description:  
Brilliant of Henris work during one of his greatest periods. This true classic depicts two young girls, a favorite subject for the artist. The younger one is offering her sister in blue a bouquet of flowers, perhaps a peace offering for a sibbling squabble. Calixte Henry was born in Port-au-Prince, January 3, 1933. He began to paint at the Centre dArt in 1955. Not long after, he abandoned painting brushes in favor of razor blades and painting knives which lent a certain finesse and transparency to his paintings. Calixte Henry eliminates all extrenous details in his paintings for a refined line. He obtains volume through the contrasts of tones. The rudimentary drawing is compensated by a harmony of elegant colors. Henry received a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation of New York in the 1980s. His works have been widely exhibited in France and in Switzerland as well as in Haiti and the US, and have a world-wide reputation among galleries and collectors. His paintings illustrate scores of books on Haitian art.
