The following excerpt about this artist is from Lyle Elder Folk Art and Outsider Art: For more information about the Mlles Blondeau visit:

"Mademoiselles H. Blondeau
Born: ? Active c. 1925.
Mlles H. Blondeau. Sculptors. Wood carvers. Quebec City area.  Active 1920’s-1940’s.


The Mlles Blondeau made souvenir carvings. They were one of the earliest artists in this field in the Quebec City area. Little is known about them – were they sisters? Mother and daughter? They were obviously very talented. The Mlles Blondeau did not work in the flat-plane tradition. They usually painted their carvings.  Most of their work was naïve, painted low relief carvings or ‘bas relief’ although I have seen a shadow box by them occasionally. Who they are and their exact dates are is still a mystery Their range seems to be from the early 1920’s to the late 1930’s.


The Mlles Blondeau  usually signed with a stamp (Mlles H. Blondeau, Quebec) or wood punch; sometimes the mark was burnt into the wood and sometimes just stamped.  They worked in Basswood and their work was often very good and very colorful."
