Sculptors Wilfrid Richard and Family

A world of animals, created by four generations of a family of passionate sculptors who left their mark on Québec folk art.

The collection of artist Wilfrid Richard (1894–1994) and members of his family was donated to the Musée de la civilisation in 2010 by Bernard Genest, ethnologist, author and collector. These are individual works, associated with their most illustrious representative, Wilfrid Richard, who was born in Saint-Ubalde in the Portneuf region, but they also illustrate the history of a family. Wilfrid Richard inherited his vision of the world from his father, and then in turn passed it down to his children and grandchildren. The Richards' reputation as artists is now firmly established: having four generations of animal sculptors in one family is exceptional in folk art.
