History is in the making as we enter the 21st century, bringing forth a school of art born only in the last fifty years, indigenous to this region of idealic light and abundant color.
The School of Caribbean art now touches points all over the world, bright beacons of inspired imagery communicating a world, a culture, unknown to most only a half century ago.
How many have learned of the existence of the coralita, the soursop, mangoes and madras, the brilliant flamboyant trees bejeweling our islands, having seen them first in paintings from our Caribbean world?
We honor one among us, one man who has committed his whole life to this important world of communication through art, St. Martin’s native son leader and patriarch of Caribbean art,
Sir Roland Richardson.
