#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.
