Biography   Hector Hyppolite


An African-Haitian painter from St. Marc, Haiti, Hector Hyppolite lived in the early part of the 20th century and remains one of the prominent naive or untrained painters in the culture of his country.   In 1944, when DeWitt Peters opened the Centre D'Art in Port-au-Prince to showcase Haitian artists, "the first painter to gain recognition was Hector Hyppolite.  . . .He was a voodoo priest whose innate ability made him one of the greatest natural painters of modern times."

Hyppolite's painting subjects included Christian religion, voodoo themes and still life.  The Metropolitan Museum of New York exhibited his work towards the end of his productive career, which lasted to his death in 1948.
