Orville Bulman (American, 1904-1978): An original oil painting on canvas titled "Petit Compagnons" ("Little Companions"), produced in 1957. This whimsical figural seascape is crafted in the style of Haitian folk artists and depicts a motorboat painted in a colorful palette of pink, yellow, gold, and orange. The scene includes five figures aboard, among them two small nude child figures, set against the backdrop of green Caribbean waters under a blue and gold sky. Bulman, who lived in Haiti during the 1950s, produced numerous paintings portraying the fauna and flora of the region. The artist's signature is located in the lower left corner, and the title, along with the artist's signature and the date 1957, is on the canvas verso. The painting is presented in a rustic wood frame.
