Mid Century Canadian Wood Carving in the Style of Paul-Emile Caron
Known for its folk art wood carvings, the Quebecois village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli pioneered a gestural but modest style of carving made famous by the work of Paul-Emile Caron. The carvings mostly tackle single figures of native animals or working class people, sometimes in historic garb. This example depicts a man in contrapposto, wearing traditional Colonial Era dress and clutching a hat in his right hand. Unsigned.
