Biography of Albert Huie

It is with sadness that I report Albert Huie, Master Jamaican Painter and Printmaker has made his transition.  He passed Sunday, January 31, 2010 and will surely be missed.

The Huie Family released this statement:

On behalf of the Huie Family we would like to thank Jamaica for its outpouring of admiration and love shown towards our beloved Huie.

He loved Jamaica as depicted in his works.  They are not only a testament to his talents but also a treasure for Jamaicans and his admirers to enjoy forever.”

My thanks to the Albert Huie family for graciously allowing me to use the image of Wash Day, an original oil on canvas painted in 1944. Albert Huie, Master Jamaican Painter and Printmaker, was born in Falmouth, Jamaica on December 31,1920. Huie knew his destiny at an early age, as he began doodling with charcoal, from his grandmothers’s old coal stove, on the floor and walls of his Falmouth home.

Thank you for embracing the vision of
