Micius Stephane was born in 1912 in Bainet, on the Caribbean coast of Haiti. He worked as a cobbler and then as a painter. He joined the Centre d'Art in 1948 at the encouragement of DeWitt Peters, subsequently moving to Port-au-Prince in 1956. He is credited with having brought Edger Jean-Baptiste to the Centre d"Art. His son, Peters Stephane, and his daughter, Edith Stephane, are also painters, each working in distinctive styles clearly influenced by their highly successful father. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Detroit Institute of Arts, Musée d’Art Haitien and the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and is published in Island on Fire (Demme, 1997), Where Art is Joy (Rodman, 1988) and Haitian Art (Ute Stebich, 1978). Stephane passed away in 1996.
