Paintings by Canute Calliste.

Please note that the map ocation is not exact.

Caliste is recognized as among the greats of the truly primitive painters, and is collected world-wide.

His works are the subject of a great book: “The Mermaid Wakes,” by Lora Berg.

An excerpt from the book: “Many words are used to describe the work of primitive or naive painters but the more we try to define this, the more it eludes us.

As by a child’s smile after tears, we are arrested and cleansed by innocence.

From his own experience and his faithful love of the teeming family life around him, Canute Caliste gives to us an explosive, humorous, and loving account of his tiny world of Carriacou – and for this we thank him.”
