CLEMENTINE HUNTER

BIOGRAPHY
Artist Art Brokerage: American artist Clementine Hunter was born in 1886, at Hidden Hill - a cotton plantation close to Cloutierville, Louisiana - difficult place to work and live. When Clementine turned five, her family moved to another plantation in Cane River County, where Clementine attended school. She did not like school very much and often failed to attend. When she reached age fourteen, Clementine's family moved to the Melrose Plantation, to work for John Hampton and Carmelita Garritt Henry, also known as "Miss Cammie". Melrose had been the center of Cane River for many years. The plantation had become known as an agricultural empire, with its thousands of acres of corn, cotton, tobacco and hundreds of head of cattle. Miss Cammie desired to preserve the arts and crafts of the Cane River area, and over the years Melrose became a haven for many artists and writers. They came from all over to work in the quiet relaxing atmosphere, and all were encouraged by Miss Cammie. Clementine and her family worked on the plantation in the cotton fields and the pecan groves. Clementine married twice. Her first husband Charlie Duprie died in 1914, leaving her with two children. Ten years later, she married Emmanuel Hunter and had five children, but lost two at birth. Clementine took her babies to the fields with her so that she could check on them while picking cotton. Then, in 1928 Clementine was promoted from the fields to the house to look after the gardens and the laundry and she made clothes for Miss Cammie's children and their dolls. She also created marvelous quilts in beautiful rich colors. It became clear that Clementine had hidden talents. Life was good and it got even better. In 1938 a man named Francois Mignon joined the Melrose family, working as a literary assistant to Miss Cammie. From day one, Francois recognized the creativity in Clementine Hunter, and it was due to his encouragement that the now 54 year old woman began painting. As the story goes, Clementine remarked one evening to Francois "I could do a painting if I set my mind to it." Francois gave her some paint, and the next morning she presented him with a painting . From that day on she received small amounts of paint from visiting artists and the rest is... well, history. For the next forty some years, Clementine produced 4000 paintings, each one telling a story of life as she saw it in a simple, straightforward way. She did not always have canvas so she used old window shades, bottles, cardboard and brown paper bags. She was illiterate, but her paintings were her storybook - a storybook about everyday life on and around the plantation. After all her hard work, Clementine received an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts by Northwestern State University of Natchitoches and her name is preserved in the famous walk of stars in the city of Natchitoches. Clementine Hunter died on January 1, 1988 and was buried near Melrose, close to her friend Francois Mignon who believed in her gift. We have a waiting list of clients.
