About artist

Georges P. Hector

George Paul Hector was born Feb. 7, 1938 in Petite Riviere, Haiti. He died in 1993. Hector joined the Centre d'Art in 1952 (teaching) and also studied with Haitian artist Louverture Poisson.    Throughout his life, he was active in forming various artistic and writing groups including Koumbit studio in 1968.  He became the first general secretary of the National Association of Haitian Artists, and he was founder/editor of Courier des Arts.  In 1979 he created the group Third Generation, devoted to arts and crafts, painting and literature.

About the work

Georges Paul Hector receives some commissions for portraits. It was at this time, more precisely in 1963, that he painted his "Flora", named after the cyclone which, October 3 of that year devastated the country, especially the departments of the South and West. This is a typical portrait. There are errors in the anatomy of course, but the form here is of less importance. Everything happens at the level of the subject's face. We cannot say that the woman represented is beautiful. Any quest for beauty would be useless here. The truth of this portrait is that it is in the eyes of this woman, on her open mouth, by the light which illuminates her, that the horror with which she is confronted can be read.
