 Woman In A Blue Dress By Angelina Turgeon And Robert Paradis


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario
Robert Paradis,(1917 - 2007) made carvings of people, often in groups in social and work situations.  His sculptures were painted in bright, glossy colours by his spouse Angelina Turgeon  (1923-2005) and her colour work added a significant dimension to the carvings.

Woman in a blue dress in mint, untouched original condition. Unsigned as was most of their work,  but definitely from them.  Circa 1980.

8 1/2" tall, 3" x 3" base.   

I bought several pieces by this husband/wife team over the years, and always admired their directness and individual character.  They are fun to collect because all the pieces reflect different people they would see around them in their village, and most were this size (about 8 1/2" tall ), or  a taller size, about 12" tall.
