Haitian art Collection

299 pieces of Haitian art, done by renowned artists, are on display on the pages of the Electronic Gallery. Efficiently displayed, pieces by your favorite artist, using the Artist Locator, or a specific theme, like Vodou flags, can be easily located and reasonably obtained.


With its roots from Africa and France, Haitian art is grounded in tribal and religious influences like Catholicism, and, of course, Vodou. Different schools of artistry quickly developed, distinguished by the symbolism and subjects. Daily city life is indicative of the school Cap-Haïtien, while the human body in abstract comes from the Vodou-influenced Saint-Soleil School and mountain scene and coastal town depictions are associated with the Jacmel School. Another style of art that has gained popularity is from the Artibonite region. It had its start with Saincilus Ismaël, whose influence was Byzantine art. His use of geometric shapes to create vividly intricate paintings would catch on to other artists.

Art in Haiti is, of course, not limited to paintings. Flag making is an important tradition as the flags are used to decorate Vodou centers, and since the earthquake in 2010, they've been used to commemorate the devastating event. Recycled and natural materials are used to create sculptures, as well as the traditional art fare.

After the earthquake, many Haitian museums and private collectors suffered a massive loss, one lost collection was estimated at up to $100 million U.S. The Electronic Gallery is working to make art easily accessible again. Boasting a section for pieces under $350, the gallery is putting the power of owning Haitian art into the hands of any who wish to own it.
