About this product
- DescriptionIn the first part of the twentieth century few women in western Canada had careers as artists-Pauline Boutal had three: 23 years as a fashion illustrator for the Eaton's catalogue for the graphic design company, Brigden's of Winnipeg, 27 years as the Artistic Director at the Cercle Moliere Theatre and 70 years as a visual artist. Born in Brittany in 1894, Boutal painted in a traditional style and trained at the Winnipeg School of Art, the Cape Cod School of Art, and at l'Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris, France. She left an important legacy of portraits, landscapes, still lifes, and illustrations as well as theatre sets and costume designs. This English translation of Louise Duguay's award-winning Pauline Boutal: Destin d'artiste 1894-1992 shares the story of an important artist who lived an exceptional life. Today a great number of Boutal's works can be found in major private and corporate collections across Canada. For her contribution to the French culture and theatre in Canada, Boutal was awarded numerous prestigious prizes, including the Order of Canada. In addition to thousands of sketches, illustrations, and paintings, Boutal also left a rich legacy of letters, speeches and interviews at the Centre du Patrimoine Canadien. Drawing on these sources, Louise Duguay has created a work that hours the best of biography and autobiography.
