12 in x 16 in, Oil on Masonite, Framed
$2,250 - To inquire about this piece, please email Patrick Jamieson
This is an outstanding example of Armand's carnival-inspired paintings, which are much more scarce than his popular pigeon paintings.
Condition: The painting is flawless, as bright as the day it was completed. The corners of the masonite are sharp, and the simple wood frame remains in excellent condition.
Provenance: James S. Huffman Collection
James S. Huffman had a distinguished 35 year career in the United States Foreign Service. A serious collector of primitive and naive art, he sought pieces local to the regions where he served. From 1963-1965, Huffman was posted to the Dominican Republic. From there, he often went to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, where he purchased more than 50 paintings, many of them from Le Centre d'Art and Galerie Issa.
