Jacques-Richard Chery (Cap Haitien, Haiti)
Oil on board (16 x 12), c.19
Framed in original frame. Purchased from the artist in Haiti, c.1975.  Excellent condition.

Born in Cap Haitien in Northern Haiti on February 2, 1928, Chery started painting whilst still working in his regular job as a barber. He then opened a gas station in the Artibonite Valley and exhibited his art at his place of work. Following the warm reception given to his works, and on the advice of his friend Philome Obin, he moved to Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haitian Art, in 1951. In 1965, he entered the Galerie Issa, where he painted for several years. His works are often reproduced in magazines (Time, Vogue), as well as in art books.
