Where Art Is Joy: Haitian Art: The First Forty Years. In September 1994 American troops landed in Haiti, nearly 80 years after the US had first dispatched its armed forces to seize control of the tiny Caribbean country. But there were also vast differences between the two operations. The first engagement occurred at a time when great powers. could act with virtual impunity in their self-assigned spheres of influence, and American forces occupied Haiti for nearly two decades.

For much of Hector Hyppolite’s life story, I am grateful to Selden Rodman’s The Miracle of Haitian Art (Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1974) as well as Selden Rodman’s Where Art Is Joy, Haitian Art: The First Forty Years (New York: Ruggles de Latour, 1988). Basquiat’s biography, particularly his Papa, I will be very famous one day, is from Phoebe Hoban’s Basquiat: A Quick Killing in Art (Harmondsworth, UK: Penguin, 1998). Selden Rodman and Carole Cleaver tell a version of the story about Gran Brigit and the cemetery tree in their book Spirits of the Night: The Vaudun Gods of Haiti (Dallas: Spring Publications, 1992).

i searched for this many years in book stores, got my 1st computer 2 years ago and immediately started looking for my out of print-gotta -haves. (i am a book junkie). found this but couldn't afford the copies i located, kept looking on and off and suddenly more copies popped up and i got this for $29.50 when the previously found best price for a book in this condition, which i was struggling not to buy because i am financially challenged, was $124.00. i ordered immediately, received it promptly BUT it was just dropped, unwrapped, into a cheap mailer. i found it propped up against my door, dripping wet, with a 5 inch gash in the envelope and the stuffing spilling out. the book was cold and damp, but i hope ok. i removed the dj and have it open, every now and then changing pages to insure it is completely dry. the book is immaculate, the dj had very minor damage, maybe it was only cold, not yet damp, and it was a miracle i looked for my mail at that time. if you don't know the book, it is filled with astonishing plates and excellent text, and documents, wonderfully, the explosion of the haitian art movement. that alone makes it historic, but tragically, many pieces remaining in haiti, especially the murals in st. trinity cathedral, were destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. i am thrilled to have this copy. i think all reviewers should mention packaging, which varies greatly.

One ot the top three haitian books, the best one published in the USA. Great Book, wonderful photos and history.
