|Gabriel Lévêque was born in 1923 in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti. One of the most reputed representatives of the great neo-primitive School of Haitian art of 1944. Leveque gained wide fame though his murals in the Holy Trinity Cathedral of Port-au-Prince.
Alfred Voegeli, the Episcopal Bishop, ignoring objections from the Haitian elite, asked Obin, Bazile, Bigaud and Leveque to decorate the church of Sainte Trinité. The results were magnificent. Angels carrying garlands of flowers were painted above the main altar of the cathedral. Gabriele’s works are normally sold in Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Butterfield and other major auction houses. His paintings are in high demand by collectors.
