Haitian Art by Louisianne St. Fleurant
Louisianne St. Fleurant was born on September 11, 1924 in the small town of Petit -Trou-de-Nippes, Haiti. In 1972 she joined the art colony of Saint-Soleil in the mountains above Port-Au-Prince, eventually becoming one of the best-known of the Saint-Soleil painters. She was also a founding member of "Cinq Soleils", an offshoot group that formed in the late 80’s. Recent years have been marked by personal tragedy for her as three of her four children died between 1989 and 1994, including her son Stivenson Magloire, age 31, an internationally known painter, who was stoned to death by personal enemies on October 9, 1994. Her one surviving son, Ramphis Magloire is also a well-known painter, as is her daughter, Magda Magloire.

Louisianne died in Haiti on June 1, 2005

In the Spring of 2010, the cemetery
in which Loiusianne and Stivenson were buried,
was bulldozed
