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 painting captures a wager in process for a cockfight that is about to take place. In this scene both gamecocks are already lurching at each other while the bets are being sealed. Cockfights are a popular pastime in Haiti. This painting has very bright colors, so bright that they resemble enamels. ”
