RIP Burton Chenet
Burton Chenet lost his life last night. He was a fine artist, and at one time my neighbor. We lived on the hills above Port-au-Prince and Burton and his brothers were fascinating to my sisters and I. I admit Burton was secret focus of my devotion when I was eight. Being in Miami surrounded by more Haitian art than ever these days, I thought I might run into him again. I looked forward to it. It's a terrible loss.
This is a painting of his (ndp).
