By Candice Russell.

From painting and sculpture to papier-mache and gorgeously embellished Vodou flags, Russell's book is a celebration of the best examples in each medium produced in Haiti in the last seven decades. The misunderstood religion of Vodou informs much of the art. Learn about the diverse history of Haitian artistic schools, including the depiction of ordinary life in the Cap-Haitien style, and the mysterious and haunting images that make Saint Soleil so appealing. This mixture of work by masters like Hector Hyppolite and younger, emerging artists demonstrates the importance of the bond between past, present, and future generations. Irreplaceable artworks, as well as hundreds of thousands of lives, were destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. In this historically important book, see how this resilient nation is rebuilding itself while thoughtfully preserving its heritage and culture through art.

Hardcover, 256 pages.
