Biography - St. Louis was the second and probably the best-known of the four celebrated Blaise brothers, all of whom became fine Haitian painters. He began painting in 1971, studying with Charles Anatole and the Bottex brothers. He moved to port-au-Prince, where he worked for a time at Galerie Issa. later he was represented by the Galerie Monnin, from which these paintings were purchased. In the early part of his career St. Louis Blaise was best known for the kind of historical scenes and portraits shown below. Later on he turned his attention to paintings of exaggeratedly fat members of the Haitian bourgeoise in a manner reminiscent of Botero. But whatever the subject, his attention to detail was unrivalled. His paintings are widely collected, especially in Europe, and are in the permanent collections of many museums. St. Louis Blaise died in 1993.
