Emile Bluteau

I have put a short biography of Emile Bluteau up on the Artists page. Here is an excerpt. I shall post his first work on the Gallery page shortly, as well.

Emile Bluteau is one of Quebec’s great primitive artists. He started carving in the late 1970′s, birds at first, and then after a break, he began carving the human condition in all its moods and shapes. Emile’s sense of humor is visible in nearly every carving. And very obvious when he talks about himself……

Arthur Sauve (1896-1973)

Born in Maxville, Ontario; Arthur Sauve began carving in the 1920’s. He carved picture frames, shelves, musical instruments, whirligigs, animals and people. He has been extensively collected and cited by, among others, Blake Mckendry* and Russell Harper*. Pictured is a Crucifix by M. Sauve. Signed and dated (1957) on the reverse, it is a remarkable expression.

It is about 18 inches tall and made of  Pine and finished with ‘as found’ oil paint and varnish.
