iciHaiti - Obituary : Death of Michel Monnin
Pradel Henriquez, the Ministry of Culture learned with stupefaction of the death of Michel Monnin, which occurred on Friday, November 13, in a private hospital in Pétion-ville following a cerebral hemorrhage.

Michel Monnin was famous in the visual arts circles in Haiti and especially, in the field of painting, where he promoted many painters, some of whom would later become great Masters. He was known as a gallery owner and collector, but he was also a brilliant writer, novelist and short story writer.

"Minister Henriquez who knew Michel Monnin well, presents his sympathies to Madame Toni Monnin, Michel Monnin's wife, to his daughter Pascale, painter, plastic artist, to Gaël Monnin his daughter, Galerist and to the Agronomist, Michel Elie Monnin, his son.

The whole family, and the whole community of artists, writers, and culture in general, are asked to receive the sympathies of the Ministry of Culture.

There are men who do not die.

The Monnin gallery remains a living witness to the immortality of this giant contributor to the impetus of our culture and our art."

Born in Switzerland in 1940 and established in Haiti in 1948, Michel Monnin was educated at the Institution Saint-Louis de Gonzague.

In 1956, his parents inaugurated the Galerie Monnin in Pétion-ville. In 1965, as part of a tourism project, Michel Monnin stayed in Port-Salut, in the south of Haiti and it was there that he would definitely hang on, take root.

From 1968, he devoted himself body and soul to the promotion of Haitian art with a particular focus for Haitian painting. He was an enthusiast who knew how to enter with fervor and dignity, in the meanders of a Haitian culture both rich and complex.
