Lot 0038 Details

Description
Acrylic on driftwood. Featuring aboriginal figures. Signed Norval Morrisseau (1932-2007, Canadian).9 x 60 cm (3.5 x 23.6 inches), 650 grams. Norval Morrisseau (1932-2007) was an Anishinaabe Aboriginal Canadian artist. Best known for his paintings of mythical tableaux, his narrative works of figures and animals were painted in vibrant, fluorescent colors featuring thick black outlines akin to stained glass windows or woodcuts. “These paintings only remind you that you're an Indian. Inside somewhere, we're all Indians,” the self-taught artist once said. “So now when I befriend you, I'm trying to get the best Indian, bring out that Indianness in you to make you think that everything is sacred.” Born on March 14, 1932, in Beardmore, Ontario, he achieved widespread national success throughout his artistic career, garnering major commissions such as a large mural created for Expo 67 in 1967, which expressed the political dissatisfaction of the First Nations People of Canada. Morrisseau also regularly exhibited and sold his work in various Canadian galleries until his death in Toronto on December 4, 2007. Today, his work can be found in the collections of the Royal Ontario Museum, the National Gallery of Canada, the Dennos Museum Center, and the Art Gallery of Windsor, among many others. PROVENANCE: Private gallery collection
