Jean-Philippe Dallaire - Masque

Original 1964


Lot number: 23
Lot # 023 Post-War & Contemporary Art Live auction Jean-Philippe Dallaire QMG 1916 - 1965 Canadian Masque oil on canvas signed and on verso signed, titled, dated 1964, inscribed "Vence AM, France" and stamped with the Dominion Gallery stamp 21 x 19 in 53.3 x 48.3cm Provenance: Dominion Gallery, Montreal Galerie Michel-Ange, Montreal Private Collection, Montreal Quebec artist Jean Dallaire was known for his modernist paintings that combined figuration and abstraction and showed influences from Symbolism, Cubism and Surrealism. His artistic career was diverse – he worked as a mural painter, draughtsman, illustrator at the National Film Board, teacher at the École des beaux-arts in Quebec City and tapestry designer. In 1959, Dallaire moved to the South of France, to Vence, an ancient hill town known for its beauty. The light was brilliant in Vence, and in response, Dallaire heightened his palette to great vivacity, ranging here from acid yellow and hot red to deep cobalt and green. During this period, the figure was central to Dallaire’s imagery, and the realm of the imagination dominated. He depicted magicians, Martians and unusual small people – in a joyful, carnivalesque atmosphere. Masque has a dreamlike feeling and, typical of the artist’s works from this period, the flattened planes of the figure are shown against a simplified colour-field background. Dallaire has abstracted and flattened the head of his figure into a mask, and its direct yet enigmatic gaze makes this a penetrating and intriguing image.

JEAN-PHILIPPE DALLAIRE A NYMPH INTO THE ST. LAURENT\’S RIVER gouache signed, dated \‘59 and inscribed \“Vence, A.M.\”; also signed, titled, dated and inscribed on the reverse 14 ins x 18 ins; 33 cms x 44.5 cms Provenance: Private Collection, Toronto Jean-Philippe Dallaire (1916-1965) was a painter, an illustrator for the National Film Board of Canada, and a teacher. He had some formal art training in Canada and then in Paris, 1938-40 at the Studios of Sacred Art run by Maurice Denis and Georges Desvalières, and at the André Lhote Academy. In Paris, the work of Picasso, Pellan, and the Surrealists were a revelation, and would have a lasting influence on his art. He was also interested in naive art and children\’s drawings. His large body of work shows a variety of stylistic influences and is imaginative and original. In 1958, he left his family and moved to Vence in Alpes-Maritime on the French Riviera, where he died in 1965. A Nymph into the St. Laurent\’s River [sic] is a work of fantasy, painted by Dallaire in France, far from the Canadian river that was discovered by Jacques Cartier on June 9, 1534 and named after Saint Lawrence of Rome. The ninth of June was also Dallaire\’s birthday, and this may have been painted on that day in June 1959. St. Lawrence (a lesser-known, martyred saint) has been transformed into the spirit of the river, appearing as a fish with a human head, holding a cross (one of his attributes) before him. The saint met a horrible death—he was roasted alive—and the flame above his head may refer to that event. A red-eyed cyclops (likely the artist himself) in the bottom left corner is weeping, while an impish figure to the right may be one of the saint\’s torturers. Dallaire had done a number of religious paintings and a mural for the Dominican convent in Ottawa in 1936, and had attended the Studios of Sacred Art in Paris, whose aim was to teach artists to produce religious art that was modern and relevant.
