A typically colorful painting from Haiti, featuring female figures carrying loads of fruit on baskets balanced on their heads, against a mysterious deep green background landscape. The painting is signed at lower right "Xavier B./Haiti/2000". Measurements are 25" by 21" as framed in white wood. Canvas is slightly rippled, there are a few hairline crack marks in the legs of several figures, but nothing that is bothersome at normal viewing distance. Canvas is of an inexpensive type often used on works from this very poor country; seems to have almost a "seam" horizontally across the middle (see image of reverse side, showing this "seam". See other Haitian works in my shop.
