Seneque Obin (Haitian) Still Life, Self-taught/Folk
Item Details
Description
Seneque Obin (Haitian/Cap-Haitien, 1893-1977)
Still Life, c.1960's
Oil on masonite, 11 x 12 3/4 in.
Framed 12 1/8 x 13 3/4 in.

Provenance: Private New York Collection

Lot Essay: Ribbons around basket are colors of the Haitian Flag. Rare small Still Life painting by Seneque Obin.

Seneque, Philome Obin's younger brother, narrates Haiti's historical events, celebrations and social scenes with a decidedly vibrant color palette as a means to appeal to unexpected viewers and a way to challenge approaches to historical portraiture. Playfulness is possible even in scenes that would otherwise be weighted by an expected gravitas.
