Woman with Cross

Woman with Cross

Acrylic on canvas
(30 x 30), c.1995 (framed)

Born in 1954 in the village of Coteau, near Cayes in the far south of Haiti. His mother was a farmer and his father a cabinet-maker. Buteau remained in school until the age of 20, when he joined his father in the cabinet-making business. He began to paint at about this time, encouraged by a cousin who was a painter. He also worked as a fisherman and in a factory in Port-au-Prince until it was shut down during the embargo of the early 1990's. This circumstance led to his focusing on painting anew, with the encouragement of Galerie Bourbon-Lally, among others.
