About the work

Painting Description:

“This lovely painting depicts a mother and father with their three children. The canvas was processed before painting to create a unique effect where one can actually feel the painting when the hand is passed over it. This style of painting is unique to the artist; no other known Haitian artist uses it. Jacob is listed in many art publications. The painting is housed in antique wooden frame and is signed and dated on the back by the artist. The painting is fully guaranteed”
