Masefield, William

The Sailor’s Valentine. Nova Scotia. Circa 1975. It is a very striking work. Full of Heart and I really like the Piano motif on the carving of the fish. It measures about 12 inches high and the Fish is about 18 inches long.  Signed by the artist on the base: William Masefield.                                                                    $225.00

I found this work some years back (about 12 or 15) in Nova Scotia. It is signed on the base “Wilm. Masefield” and that is about the only information that I have on it unfortunately. There are often mysteries around provenance in the field of outsider and folk art and here is another.

Paul-Emile Caron,

Quebec City wood carving of the head of a man. This is an unsigned work; I am attributing it to Paul-Emile Caron. It is marked on the base in script: ‘Plessiville Que’ and it is carved of Pine and painted.  It is about three inches high and is a stunning carving. Circa 1940.

Emile Bluteau

Emile Bluteau. Sculptor. Quebec. Head of a Montaignais. Carved into a round piece of Birch Wood tree trunk.

Mr. Bluteau told me that he chose a well dried piece of White Birch stove wood for his first try at wood carving. He finished the piece after some months and he never carved  hardwood again. This is the work.

It is Emile Bluteau’s first sculpture. The head of a Montaignais Indian. Carved in a single block of White Birch wood. Made in the mid-1970’s over a period of some months. It is about 14 inches long and 6 inches in diameter.

A work of great power by one of Quebec’s finest primitive artists.

Please inquire for pricing and delivery.
