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 notoriously 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, and varying amounts for overseas shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Seymour E. Bottex

About the Artist

Seymour Etienne Bottex was born in Port-Margot, near Cap-Haitian, on Christmas eve day, December 24,1922. He began to paint in 1955, encouraged by his already renowned brother, Jean-Baptiste, and in 1961 joined the Centre d'Art. Bottex is best known for his biblical themes as well as scenes from historical events and Haitian life.

One of the "Old Masters" of Haitian painting, Bottex' works have been illustrated in many books and articles on Haitian and naive art. His colors and Modigliani-like female figures are unmistakable marks of his unique style, valued by knowledgable collectors. Bottex' works are on exhibit in the U.S., England, France (Espace Cardin), and Italy (Festival of Two Worlds - Spoleto), and have been sold through Sotheby's auction house in New York.

Seymour E. Bottex died on Monday May 16,2016, at the age of 93.
