ROBERT C BRICTSON
PROFESSOR & CURATOR
Dr Robert C Brictson () was a Professor Emeritus at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.
“A Haitian Heritage,” at the Iturralde Gallery, gives an ample account of the country’s visual richness. The show’s paintings, sequined flags and metal sculptures, which date from the 1950s to the present, come primarily from a single private collection, but the selection is broad, touching on syncretic, sensual and spiritual strands of Haitian art.
Most of the work was collected by Dr. Robert Brictson, a retired professor who divides his time between homes in La Jolla and Jacmel, Haiti. Brictson’s collection is complemented by photographs of Haitian life made by San Diegan Bradley Smith and several works of art from Smith’s own collection. All of the works are for sale.
