Product Description

BRIERRE; Smiling Sun Metal Face

Murat BRIERRE was born in Mirebalais in 1938. He first worked as a builder, cabinetmaker, and blacksmith before being introduced to Le Centre d'Art in 1966. After trying painting with DeWitt Peters, he realized that metal sculpture was best suited for him and studied under Georges Liautaud in order to lean the métier. He also made very beautiful linocuts. Francine Murat quickly recognized his talent and considered Brierre to be one of the best Haitian sculptors. he passed away in 1988 at the age of 50.

Brierre's works have been exhibited in France, the United States, Switzerland, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Jamaica, in such places as the Abbaye de Daoulas, the Grand Palais, the Brooklyn Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Mexico and the Musée du Montparnasse. His work is part of the permanent collections at the Waterloo Museum, the Davenport Museum, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Le Centre d'Art, the Musée d'art Haitien du Collége Saint-Pierre and the Musée De Panthéon National Haitien.
