iciHaiti - Culture : Passing of the writer and painter Claude Dambreville
The General Directorate of the National Book Directorate (DNL) has learned with sadness the news of the death of the writer Claude Dambreville on March 15, 2021, Henri Deschamps Prize in 1983, for his novel "Un goût de fiel", and co-author, in 1995, with Frankétienne from the book "L'Amérique saigne".

He has also written several tales and short stories, novels, radio programs and soap operas.

Writer and painter, Claude Dambreville was born in Port-au-Prince on December 17, 1934. He was very famous for his paintings of Haitian women (especially in white) at the market. His works have been among others in the large collections of the Center d'Art, the Nader Gallery, the Musée du Collège St-Pierre, the Festival Art Gallery, the Jolicoeur Galerie, the Hôtel Oloffson, the Hôtel Castel Haiti, Galerie Issa, Red Carpet Gallery. Some foreign personalities like Pierre Cardin, Denzel Washington and Danielle Mitterand also have works by Claude in their collections.

In this painful circumstance, the Directorate General of the National Book Directorate sends its sympathies to his grieving family, in particular his wife, Bettyna Savain, and his two sons, Vadim and Tao-Claude, as well as to the two sectors of the book and of the painting grieved by this immense loss.

Claude Dambreville died at the age of 86.

"We salute the departure of Claude Dambreville, an artist full of surprises who has marked Haitian painting due to the versatility of his work over the years. The Art Center is fortunate to have in its collection one of all first works of Dambreville, from the time when he signed 'Anatole Cyprien',"stressed the Art Center.
