Hyacinthe Kuller Baron is essentially self taught, a child prodigy and living proof of the artistic nature inherent in all of us.
Hyacinthe attended the High School of Music & Art in New York City and, at age nine, was the youngest student ever admitted to adult classes at the The Art Students League on 57th Street. She studied briefly with Frank Mason, Jose De Creeft, Chaim Gross. In Greenwich Village Hyacinthe associated with Jackson Pollock, Wilhelm DeKooning and other artists of the time and was mentored by Marcel Duchamp quoted as declaring: “Hyacinthe is to be the heir to Michelangelo and Rubens. Hyacinthe’s draftsmanship is natural and superb”. Inspired by Andre Malraux and his concept of the Museum Without Walls, she worked directly with Pratt Institute to establish their School Without Walls program. Throughout the 60’s and to the present day her art has been widely collected by public and private institutions and celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Onassis, Martha Raye, etc.
The artist moved on to produce a diverse body of work that includes sculptures, videos, published books and ultimately fashion collections created from the love for fashion that always informed and inspired her art. Mentored by Halston and Charles James, the Hyacinthe hand painted silk collection became a celebrity favorite and sold out in department stores world wide as did Hyacinthe’s collaborations with Oscar De LaRenta, Mary McFadden, Diane Von Furstenberg and Calvin Klein.
Hyacinthe developed the “Making Your Mark” technique and lectured and taught even the blind to draw.
Today Hyacinthe’s contemporary images of women, and mothers and children stand as icons of modern artistic expression of the beauty of the female spirit. Early paintings are considerably rare as the artist no longer creates originals on these themes.
