Kinsman Robinson Galleries fondly remembers our eighteen-year association with Norval Morrisseau, also called Copper Thunderbird. Norval Morrisseau was one of the most influential indigenous artists of the 20th century.
Like Canadian art pioneers, Tom Thomson and Emily Carr, Morrisseau inspired successive generations of visual artists to pursue their own visions.
Morrisseau was a Grand Shaman, a passionate storyteller and the inspiration behind one of North America's most colourful, instantly recognizable and notably original art movements, the Woodland or Anishinaabe School of Art.
