Francois Mercier

Born: 1914  |  Died: 1995

Francois Mercier. Sculptor. Wood carver. Mont-Saint-Pierre, Gaspe, Quebec. Active mid 20th century.

Francois Mercier made carvings of model boats and of very elegant birds. He carved in Pine and sometimes used color and sometimes not. He often made the body of the bird first and then applied very elegantly curved wings. Like many of the artists of that period (1960’s-1970’s); signed pieces by him are rare.
