8396: Ulysse Dabouse (fwd)
From: madison bell <email@example.com>
Does anyone know anything about Ulysee Dabouse (sometimes spelled Dabouse),
reputed to be a 19th century Haitian artist? I received as a gift a small
bust of Toussaint Louverture carved in mahogany, with details painted or
gilded. As a portrait it strikes me as rather sophisticated-- artist would
seem to have studied the best authenticated portraits of Toussaint
available and then to have made his own interpretation-- it is far from
being a simple copy of another image.
Be grateful for any information on this artist or his work. He also did
similar bust/portraits of Dessalines, Petion, &c.
