A member of the "First Generation" of Haitian artists, Montas Antoine was born in Leogane on December 14, 1926. He joined the famous Centre d'Art in 1951, while still serving as a soldier in the Haitian army. He turned to painting full-time in 1960. One of the great Haitian intuitive painters, Antoine's work has been exhibited widely, and is now included in the permanent collections of the Musee d'Art Haitien du College Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut, and the New Orleans Museum of Art.
