Easter Angel Doll by Debbee Thibault

During the Depression Era of the 1930’s starving American artists were commissioned to produce art in the American spirit through the the government-sponsored WPA program. Among these commissioned art works were dolls. Contemporary American artist Debbee Thibault has become known for her excellent work in recreating the style and spirit of those WPA dolls. Each handmade paper mache "Easter Angel" is a unique example of her personal touch with a wire halo, outstretched wings, and even her own paper mache teddy bear. "Easter Angel" has jointed arms, detailed facial modeling, and a weighed paper mache base which is signed and numbered by the artist.

Debbee Thibault

The artist has a simple credo, "each of my characters start from the stories I make up about them," which helps explain their fable like quality. Made entirely by hand in her California studio, each bears the true mark of individuality. Created of a unique paper mache that exactly captures the look of 19th century folk art dolls, and decorated with quirky yet artful touches, it's no wonder that Debbee Thibault has become a standard in Florence & George catalogs as well as collectors homes. Each is signed, numbered, and dated.
