Paul-Emile Caron Style Wood Carving of a Man
Known for its folk art wood carvings, the Quebecois village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli in Canada 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 wearing traditional Colonial Era dress and clutching his waist belt. Unsigned.
