The well-dressed couple in this painting tower in size compared to the children. (It is not uncommon in Haitian paintings for relative size to indicate relative importance.) Additionally, the nice furniture and a well-behaved dog in the house suggest that this is a bourgeois family.
Condition: Excellent in a rustic, hand carved, Haitian wood frame. The painting is as bright and fresh as the day it was completed.
See Portrait of a Couple by Micius Stephane for another artist's take on a bourgeois Haitian couple.
