Notes:
Louis Archambault (born in Montreal in 1915 and died in 2003) was a very active and influential modern sculptor in Canada, especially during the 1950s and 1960s. Archambault was awarded the Centennial Medal in 1967 and the Order of Canada in 1968. His small 1962 bronze sculpture of "A Winged Man" measures 69.6 by 40.5 cm. It was purchased by the University Women's Club of Burlington and presented to the City to be displayed on a plinth at the terrace overlooking Spencer Smith Park, newly created as a Centennial Project. Within a few weeks of its installation it was subject to vandalism, but was retrieved and relocated inside the Central Public Library. The sculpture itself is now displayed on the same level as the Burlington History archives room. Another bronze casting of this work is in the collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
