Painting (7.5x6.5") by Haitian artist Andre Normil is titled "Marchande", and depicts a woman haggling over bananas at a village market.

According to the bio of Normil on verso, "Normil was born in Port-au-Prince in 1934. Like virtually all of the Haitian artists he is entirely self-taught. He is a remarkable natural draughtsman, delighting in painting the local scene with keen observation and humor." Near fine.
