Henri Angers

Born: 1870  |  Died: 1963

Henri Angers. Sculptor. Wood carver. Neuville (Portneuf), Quebec. Active early to mid 20th century.

All though some authors have included Henri Angers in  listings of folk artists; he was in fact trained (as an apprentice) in the work shop of Quebec artist Louis Jobin and studied further in Belgium at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts there. He is known in Quebec for his religious church carvings in paint and gilded wood.
