A wonderful, color-filled painting from Haiti, the subject a tropical village and its various ingredients.....pigs, chickens, and close to FORTY colorfully-clad figures going about their daily lives. (I get a different number every time I count). The painting is signed at lower right "Rodrigue M" and dated 18-12-1971. The artist is RODRIGUE MERVILUS (1947-), born in St. Marc, Haiti. He showed early talent as an artist in the Haitian folk art style. Works have sold at auction. Oil on Masonite, measurements a generous 24" by 30" (30" by 36" as framed). Condition is excellent, I note a slight torsion-twist to the panel and framing. The style reminds a bit of the well-known works of Haitian artist Wilson Bigaud. All in all, a very satisfying example of twentieth century Haitian painting.
