Alban Bluteau

Born: 1923  |  Died: 2015

Alban Bluteau. Painter. Baie-Saint-Paul, Charlevoix, Quebec. Active mid 20th century- .

Alban Bluteau was strongly influenced by the many different artists who came to paint in Charlevoix County. He grew up in what must have been a glorious environment, with both Academy artists, and outsider naive artists, working around him. He began to paint in his 20’s and developed a very charming naive style somewhat in the Canadian school. He paints brilliant and startling pictures of Charlevoix landscapes and seascapes in bright primary colours. He signs his work and usually titles and dates them. Shown below is an example of his work.
