Rare Haitian Oil Painting-Xaviar Gazul
A very fine, rare Haitian oil painting on canvas laid down on board by Xaviar Gazul (1783-18??) (one of a pair - the first one is lot #11) of a small girl with the following written on the bottom right hand corner "Anne Marie Josephine de Beaumonir de Saint Denis Ne Le 17 Juliet 1817". Xaviar Gazul was born at Port au Prince, Haiti, in 1783. His talent was encouraged by Goya and he specialized in painting Plantation Royalty but unfortunately, there is no record of his works after 1821 and his recorded works are few in number.
Overall cracklure but in good condition.
