About the Artist

Philome Obin – (July 20, 1892 -August 1986) He was arguably the greatest of all Haitian artists—his main rival for that accolade is fellow painter Hector Hyppolite. Born in Cap-Haïtien, he received rudimentary instruction in drawing as a boy and produced his first known painting in 1908. He painted murals and other decorative pieces for commercial establishments, fraternal organizations, and Protestant chapels in the beginning. Two decades after his death, works by Philomé Obin are found internationally.
