By Armand Garnet Ruffo
$50.00




Norval Morrisseau's unique artistic vision is revealed in this selection of works drawn from the collection of the National Gallery of Canada and from public and private collections across Canada. NORVAL MORRISSEAU'S UNIQUE VISION was first revealed to the art world in 1962 on the occasion of his inaugural public exhibition at the Pollock Gallery in Toronto. In the decades to follow, the style of painting he developed became known as “Woodland” or “Legend” painting. It is now referred to as Anishnaabe painting, a term that references his heritage and the archetypal status of his work. This book spans Morrisseau's entire career of nearly fifty years. Organized chronologically, the selection of some sixty works, all reproduced in colour, includes early scrapings and paintings on birchbark, paintings on plywood, painted objects and paintings on canvas.
