KRG To Showcase Sold-Out Morrisseau Exhibit

Norval Morrisseau's major dealer and principal gallery will showcase the sold-out exhibit, Norval Morrisseau: Early Paper & Birch Bark, from Nov 19 until Dec 17, 2011. Thirty-four original works of art from early-to-mid-1960s will be on display. Norval Morrisseau came to prominence following his first sold-out exhibition at Toronto's Pollock Gallery in 1962. Time Magazine (Sep 28, 1962) reported on Morrisseau's overnight success: “Few exhibits in Canadian history have touched off a greater immediate stir than Morrisseau's.” It's a statement that was true almost half a century ago and still holds true today. Kinsman Robinson Galleries represented Morrisseau from 1989 until his death in 2007 at age 75.

  1. I knew it would be a huge success. I just knew it. People are looking for the authentic Morrisseau's, KRG is the place to find them. Many blessings for each and everyone. Those pieces in this post are truly remarkable. They reflect not only a strength in early Morrisseau's but also a beautiful vulnerability as well. I love em.....all my relations......MAJ....2011
