Anonymous. (a posting of unsigned and unattributed works)

 

A general listing of Carvings and Paintings, with images, of unsigned Canadian Folk Art and Outsider art.   By: Anonymous.

A well-known artist. Especially in the earlier days when Outsider artists and Folk artists were not recognized as such. Sculptors and painters, except for those few who were known in their time, did not sign their work. Some, like Damase Richard, became well known later in life and had carvings brought back to be identified and signed.

If anyone has any knowledge of these works and/or the name of the artist; please send us an email.
