The collectible Haitian oil-on-canvas folk-art painting is in very good to great condition. While this gorgeous folk-art painting is signed by Jn. Jn., as of the time of this listing, the full identification of the artist is still unknown. However, according to references, there are some other works with the same signature. Hence, since this particular painting was done by an established artist, the collectible nature of this painting should certainly increase with time. Also, the genre of this gorgeous painting has to do with the normal day to day life of Haitian women. The two figures depicted in the tropical village scene are women. They are each depicted as going in separate directions from an intersection. While one figure is depicted as carrying what appears to be a bundle of fruit, the other appears to be carrying a rectangular-shaped bowl. Hence, the two figures in the village scene are depicted as spending much of their time doing daily chores which include gathering and preparing food. In other words, they have very little time to congregate on a day-to-day basis. While other works with the same signature are incredibly colorful, the more simple color palette of this painting is most likely by design. The gray, white to off-white, and black colors may represent the sameness of the day-to-day life of a typical Haitian woman. However, while the painting appears to be depicting the sameness of their typical day to day lives, their lives are very appreciated, respected, and honored by being on center-stage in this gorgeous painting.

While it is hard to be certain, the application and sheen of the colors appear to be consistent with oil. As can be seen in the photos, there are faint crease-like lines near the edges of the painting. The lines reveal that the canvas may need stretching at some point in the future. However, the "folk-art" character of this painting is greatly increased by the more primitive way the canvas is attached to the raw wood frame. One might imagine an artist that is more concerned with conveying the message through his or her work as opposed to the trim around that same message. Moreover, it is in that spirit that the true beauty of the artist's work begins to glow and inspire.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, since there are no wall-hangers on the back of the frame, at least one will need to be installed in order to securely hang it from a wall.

There are no breaks, cracks, holes, or repair places on this gorgeous Haitian oil-on-canvas folk-art painting signed by Jn. Jn. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the painting - mainly in the form of faint distress and/or discoloration around the bottom and outer edges. Also, there is a tiny glimmer of red in the twisty-looking cloud just above the horizon. While it is hard to know if its from something red accidentally touching the canvas or whether it was put there by design, it could be that color coming through a cloud symbolizes hope in this scene. In addition, as previously noted, the canvas may need stretching at some point in the future.

The decorative possibilities for this collectible Haitian oil-on-canvas folk-art painting are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous tropical-island painting that depicts dedication, hard work, and a much slower pace of life. Also, the open collectibles shelf or accent table would welcome this signed painting for its tropical folk-art charm along with its important and inspiring depiction of women being dedicated in their daily tasks regardless of the direction they are headed or the path that they are on. In addition, the growing art collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this signed Jn. Jn. Haitian folk-art painting.

The collector will appreciate this gorgeous Haitian oil-on-canvas painting for its very good to great condition, plain and simple yet incredibly purposeful color palette, important and inspiring portrayal of dedication and resolve in the depiction of the subjects, tropical folk-art charm, Jn. Jn. signature, and beautiful overall appearance.

The collectible Haitian oil-on-canvas folk-art painting signed by Jn. Jn. weighs 10.9 oz.

The vertically oriented Jn. Jn. folk-art painting measures approximately 16" tall x 12.25" wide x .75" deep.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
