CLAYTON DEVINE
(1911 - 1981)

 

A milkman by trade, and a folk artist in the truest sense, Clayton made naive sculptures, constructions and paintings in his spare time. Because of limited interest in the Yarmouth area, where he lived his entire life, and suffering from a bad back, he stopped producing art and sold everything he had in one lot in 1979. Some of his work was featured in Canadian Antiques and Art Review in 1980 and 1981.
