For your consideration, a massive acrylic panting by the renowned Haitian artist Jean Felix DeFournoy (also known as Arfelix DeFournoy).
This early-career circa 1973 painting depicts a group banana harvesters in a rural village setting. The modernist folk-art tableau is noteworthy for its dynamic composition and bright, saturated color palette. The acrylic on board work measures 32” x 24 ½” and is housed in its original hand carved 37 ½” x 29 ½” wood frame. The painting is signed and dated. In excellent vintage condition (see photos). Jean Felix DeFournoy was born in Petion-Ville, Haiti in 1956. He received first prize in an art show for young painters at the French Institute, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in 1970. In 1980 he was among several painters exhibiting in the Dominican Republic. Since then, he has exhibited his works in Miami, New York, New Orleans, and Washington, D.C. In May, 1994 he exhibited in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and has a permanent collection in a gallery in Boca Raton, Florida. The circa 1973 painting being offered is from the earliest years of his brief, but brilliant, career. Shows wonderfully in a modernist environment
