About artist

Gerard Valcin

Gerard Valcin was born in Port-au-Prince in 1925. As a young man he was a tile setter, a trade that influenced his art as evidenced by his symmetrical placement of figures, blades of grass or trees in many of his paintings. He joined the Centre d’Art in 1950, and is regarded as a primitve master. His work is generally concerned with vodou imagery. He is the half-brother of the artist Pierre-Joseph Valcin and the uncle of Favrange Valcin, who paints under the name ValcinII. Artists who studied with M. Valcin include Madsen Mompremier and Dieudonne Rouanez.
He died on May 15, 1988.

About the work

Painting Description:

“ This is a rare opportunity to own an 8''X10'' Valcin ceremony painting! Paintings of Voodoo Ceremony scenes are Gerard Valcin's greatest strength. High in the mountains of Haiti, a voodoo ceremony is in progress. The Loas are being summoned. A sacred red drum dominated this painting. This particular drum is called the Assotor drum and is the largest and most sacred of all Haitian drums. Gerard brings out the voice of this red drum, which is the central focus of this voodoo scene. The mambo, dressed in yellow, is holding a lit candle and a jar containing alcohol to welcome the Loas. Surrounding the scene are worshipers dressed in white. The drum is believed to be a representative of the loa. ”
