Prfte Duffaut was born in Jacmel, January 1, 1923. As a child he helped his father build sailboats used for Haitian coastal traffic.
 
He began to draw on his own several months after the opening of the Centre dArt in Port-au-Prince in 1944.

Diable Soleil - SOLD
A taciturn, introverted youth, Duffaut lived through an unhappy childhood ruled by an incompetent mother, with drawing as his only expressive outlet.

He recounted that the Virgin Mary appeared to him in a dream at La Gonave Island, leading him to produce an ornamental sculpture for the chapel dedicated to her. A poet and mystic, he might be said to be a painter of dreams depicting his hopes and beliefs, as exemplified by his famous painting Virgin on the Mountain Top. Rigaud Benoit and a group of artists went to Jacmel to look for new talent and found Duffaut . During the night he had a dream: the Virgin appeared to him with outstretched hands perched on the summit of a mountain and she told him to paint his city Jacmel. Duffaut joined the Art Center in 1948. In 1951, he painted a mural at the Holy Trinity Cathedral. Duffaut strives to reconstruct a frantic reality: winding vertical streets and delicate and colorful houses constructed at the turn of the century that characterize Jacmel. Not leaving anything to chance, he writes on his painting the names of the buildings: school, customs, police, and hospital. The effect is striking. His innate sense of composition, genius of colors and pictorial clumsiness make his first works masterpieces of naive art.

Port - SOLD
As Andr Derain says: -a true naive painting knocks you off your feet.- And to quote Anatole Jakowsky : -You dont become naive, you are born a naive painter or you will never be one.

Its a gift like any other and it doesnt count on profession, age or sex...- In general the works of naives don't reflect the painter himself; which proves one more time that everything comes from elsewhere...

La Rade de Jacmel - SOLD
He is world renowned for his mountainous landscapes with serpentine roads and his crowded street scenes.

An essentially naive painter, Duffaut started out doing highly precise paintings of his hometown. He then shifted toward a style at times sophisticated, at times fantastic, depending on the painting, allowing his unbridled imagination to tinker with the laws of gravity. Duffaut has evolved over the years ; his imagination is fed by new realities ; his technique is confirmed : symmetry and linear and color perspective push him towards new heights. In his satellite cities, cities pushing to hell or climbing to heaven, Science fiction or simply the mocking smile of a shrewd countryman? Duffaut knows that luck is on his side. Prfte Duffaut in Creole means born prematurely and on top of that he was born coiff, with the placenta on his head, and in Haiti that means one of the gods elect.
