Dieudonné Cédor was a Haitian painter. Born in Anse-à-Veau, Cédor had his work displayed around the world, with exhibits in Guatemala, Mexico, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Miami, Venezuela, Colombia, and Panama. In 1967, he painted a mural for the Port-au-Prince International Airport. In 1953, he was awarded Haiti's Labor Department exhibition prize and, in 1957, the Grand Work Prize of the Haitian Office of Tourism. ..... I met Cedor thru young Beatrice Flander who lived next door to him and would later become my main demarcheur. Eventhou he was a very successful painter, he lived a very simple life in a humble house and humble neighborhood of Carrefour where every one knew him and loved him. He took public transportation on a daily basis to his job as art professor in an humble art school in down town Port au Prince to also humble students. He believed in passing the baton to the next generation. He succeeded in trainning a great number of successful artists. He was a classic Haitian gentleman who dearly loved his country. It was an honor to have known him.
