About artist/note:

In 1957, the year this whimsical interior was executed, Jean-Philippe Dallaire found himself at a crossroads. Though he had been offered the support of two Montreal collectors which would enable him to quit his job at the NFB in order to devote himself to painting full-time, he did not accept. Juggling art making with his day job must have been gruelling, but perseverance paid off. In December 1957, Dallaire was recognized in France’s leading newspaper, Le Droit, where he was described as a “brilliant French Canadian artist.”
