Bluteau Alban

Alban Bluteau (1923-2015)

Born in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François in 1923, Alban Bluteau was initiated to art at a young age while working on the family farm. He began to paint more seriously in his thirties, influenced by the great Canadian artist René Richard. A self-taught artist, Bluteau is one of the most prolific naïve painters from the Quebec province. His main subjects are landscapes mostly of the region of Charlevoix. He used a limited pallet of bright colors making his paintings vibrant and luminous. Although simple in execution his paintings depict recognizable scenes of the Quebec countryside.
