Sisson BlanchardHaiti 1929- 1983
Volailles (Chickens) 67.0003
Born in a small village in the south of Haiti, Blanchard worked as a yard boy at Le Centre d'Art and as a model there before being encouraged to begin painting by American sculptor Jason Seley who was teaching at the Centre. Blanchard's bold patterns and persistently "naive" style seem impervious to outside influence. He favors barnyard and peasant scenes.
