André Normil

1934 - 2014 (Port-au-Prince, Haiti)

André Normil was born in Port-au-Prince. He joined le Centre d’Art in 1951. Much of his work depicted Haitian market and fishing scenes which include nuanced details of life, as in Seaside Scene, in which one can find many smaller personal narratives within the larger picture. Normil also painted paradisiacal tropical fantasies including many apsects of Noah’s Arc.

His work is included in the collections of the Musée d’Art Haitien du Collège Saint Pierre in Port-au-Prince, and the Milwaukee Museum of Art.
