#2791: Painting by Rose-Marie Desruisseaux

David x Young <Frelgo@interport.net>

Rosemarie Desrusseau was my lover in 1961-62 when I lived at the Flamingo 
Restaurant run by the great Mme. Georgette Jean-Charles. There is a 
photograph of her on my website

 we often painted together and also helped begin Galerie Des Brochettes 
in Carrefour in those years. At that time reproductions of works of art 
were very rare in Haiti-- no Picassos, Pollocks, Impressionists were to 
be found anywhere. 

Rose was one of the painters who broke through the 'primitives' archtype 
so promoted by Dewitt Peters.
