Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Pierre-Joseph Valcin

About the Artist

Pierre-Joseph Valcin, c.1994
Pierre-Joseph Valcin, c.1994

Pierre-Joseph Valcin was born in Port-au-Prince in 1925. Valcin worked as a mechanic and stone mason before becoming a painter. Valcin began to paint after he was introduced to the Centre d’Art by his half-brother, the late painter Gerard Valcin, in 1959. Gerard Valcin instructed Pierre-Joseph for his first year at the Centre d’Art. While much of his work owes a debt to Gerard’s instruction, it was always looser, less stylized and more intuitive than his master’s. Pierre-Joseph continued to paint through the 1990’s. He passed away in 2000. Pierre-Joseph Valcin’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien, the Davenport (Iowa) Museum of Art and the Waterloo (Iowa) Museum of Art, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. It is published in Haitian Arts (Nadal-Gardere and Bloncourt, 1986), Haiti: Art Naif, Art Vodou (1988), Dialogue du Réel et de l’Imaginaire (1990), Haiti: Actualities and Belief (Roche, 1990), Island on Fire (Demme, 1997).
