Historical Context:
"Jean-Philippe Dallaire is best known for his festive paintings populated by strange and macabre people. In his work, the real and the imaginary intermingle in a world of form and color. Dallaire was also inspired by Italian theatre, mythological figures, surrealism, synthetic cubism and art brut. Dallaire was a representational painter despite an interest for abstraction. He played a leading role as a precursor in the return of figure painting in Canada at the end of the 60’s." -From the National Gallery of Canada. Original at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Quebéc.
