Séjourné belongs to the school of art known as the "School of Beauty". In his works he attempted to capture beauty, elegance and grace. His themes were women, landscapes and flowers. Most of his paintings are large. This heightens the effect of movement which he created by his use of fluid lines. His colors range from cool to tropical and many of his works are acrylic on masonite.
His works have always been highly valued by Haitian art collectors. Since his recent death, he has become one of the highly sought after collectibles.
