Inspiration in Montreal

Early Quebec textile - wool embroidery/crewel work.
 I had a wonderful visit to the Musee des Beaux-arts de Montreal and was able to take pictures in most of the galleries. Even the non-textiles - have quilt-like qualities.

Paul-Emile Bourduas - 1957. Rather quilt-like.
Jean-Paul Riopelle

I've misplace my notes on this one - but it's a printed textile - I'm guessing circa 1930.
