Introduction

Louis Jobin (1845-1928) continued to work in traditional French-Canadian religious sculpture, as well as now-forgotten genres, such as ship's head figures and carved pieces for store fronts. These might be compared with folk art pieces, such as those on view in the Museum of Civilization's online exhibition, at: http://www.civilization.ca/cmc/exhibitions/tresors/barbeau/mbb1000f.shtml
