Georges Delrue 1920 – 2010, one of Canada's most important Artistic Jewellers, was prominent in Montreal in the 1950s and 1960s for his avante-garde designs in gold and silver works of art.

An article in the Vie des Arts in 1964 by Jacques De Roussan describes Delrue and his work: The artist, regardless of his chosen field, is constantly searching for new dimensions to set him free from the engulfing routine and master Montreal jeweler Georges Delrue, in search of plastic reality, is no exception.

Artistic, technical and handicraft techniques are called into play in
his work and the net result of these various skills is a spontaneity that is never hindered by the material involved. It is an abstraction which emanates from nature and always remains intimately a part of nature.

Delrues work can be seen in major museums and collections including

  • Musee Les Arts Decoratifs Paris
  • The National Gallery of Canada.
