About artist

Hernot Versaint

Hernot Versaint born March 28, 1951 in Cap-Haitien. After primary school and high school at Lycee Philippe Guerrier, he began to paint in 1971. He studied under Charles Anatole and paints in the primitive style. He is also a master wood carver, in the way we say that Degas excels in portraying ballet. "His miniatures show a mastery of the knowledge of anatomy and he reigns supreme in this field, said Madame Shishi in her book Les Naif Haitiennes". He is a listed artist in Eva Pataki's book, “Art in Kitsch” and the book "Haiti Et SES PEINTRES De 1804 a 1980” by Michel Philippe Lerebours.Illustrations of his scupltures can be found in Madame Shishi's book," Les Naifs Haitiennes".
