About The Artist: Jean Dallaire (1916-1965) was a Quebec-born artist who was technically considered a virtuoso in both painting and drawing. He painted on cardboard, canvas board, linen or cotton canvas, chipboard and plywood. Despite his studies, Dallaire was largely self-taught and was highly original.
Dallaire paid little attention to external trends, while his style constantly evolved as he matured. His early work included realistic portraits, which were followed by cubist and surrealist works. All his work is characterized by a unique perception. Although interested in abstraction, he was essentially representative. His best known works are his paintings of festivities populated by unreal characters, glimpses of a mysterious private world. Despite his cheerful palette, his artificial paradise is peopled by troubled characters affected by fear, madness and violence.
