Morrisseau Book Makes Perfect Holiday Gift

  • Hardcover: 160 pages
  • Publisher: Key Porter Books (2005)
  • Language: English
Publisher's description: A true celebration of the art and life of this remarkable man, Norval Morrisseau: Return to the House of Invention, provides insights into the artist's imagination and mastery of his medium. In three essays, and the quotations that accompany the paintings, we learn about Morrisseau's approach to his work and the important historical and cultural influences that shaped his art.
He tells us, in his own words, about his travels to the dream-like House of Invention, his source of inspiration for both content and colour. In Norval Morrisseau: Return to the House of Invention, we learn of the myths and legends of his ancestors, which had a profound influence on his brush, and how they relate to his work. The book now contains paintings and other pieces created over Morrisseau's entire career. It is complemented by an essay by Donald C. Robinson, in which he describes the painter's unique approach to the physical act of painting, and explains how Morrisseau has developed as a master technician and colorist despite having little formal training. Norval Morrisseau is truly one of the most original and significant artists Canada has ever produced. This exceptional volume stands as a testament to both his incredible talent as a painter and his inspiring depth as a man. Now out of print. Available in the gallery. Price: $60.00 plus tax (Shipping and handling extra).
