Rosaire Laplante

Rosaire Laplante. Sculptor. Woodcarver. Sherbrooke, Quebec. Active late 20th century.

Rosaire Laplante was a naive artist, a sculptor of animals and people doing unusual things in ‘every day situations. Mr. Laplante had a remarkable sense of humor that made  his later work stand out. His work is painted in bright strong primary colors and is usually highly varnished.

Shown here is an early work with the initials R. L. underneath:
