SINCE 1974

A Haitian Art Gallery

This is Room 57 B, Haitian Paintings by Madsen Mompremier

Madsen Mompremier was born in Gonaives, Haiti on August 12, 1952. In 1973 he started to paint as a student of Gerard Valcin. Originally, Mompremier painted delightful scenes of everyday Haitian life, peasants in their villages and cane fields. Around 1975 he found a style which he has now been refining for more than thirty years; painting Voudou Gods with great majesty and precision. His favorite one is Erzulie, Goddess of Love, in her incarnation as La Sirene. Coincidentally, he was married to a woman named Erzulie, also an artist who was killed in the earthquake, a huge tragedy for Mompremier

A beautiful Mompremier was in the "Mami Wata" show in DC, Spring 2009
