    Description

    For Sale Henry Beaudry Framed and authenticated original paintings. Henry Beaudry is originally from Poundmaker First Nation where he was born in 1921died in 2016. He attended the Indian Residential School in Delmas. In 1941, Henry joined the Canadian Army and served in combat in southern Europe. After being wounded in battle, he was captured by German troops. On Christmas day, 1944, he was imprisoned in Stalag 7A where he remained until liberation in the spring of 1945. Upon Mr. Beaudry's return to Saskatchewan in the same year, he settled down with his wife Theresa on Mosquito First Nation, where he took up painting in 1958. Theresa Beaudry tells an amusing anecdote about her husband's first painting. Their young son had asked for the picture when it was finished and he was given it to do what he wished. The boy returned home the next day with a large box of comic books which someone had traded him for the painting. Henry Beaudry is an entirely self-taught artist. Like other Indian artists' he has the feel for color, composition, and Indian life that non-Indian artists do not possess. This is one characteristic which makes Beaudry's art, and Indian art in general, so appealing to art lovers. asking $1800.00 each or all 4 for $6000.00 Meadow Lake, Sask. phone 306-236-4634
