2014 Retrospective @ Kinsman Robinson Galleries

Norval Morrisseau 2014 Retrospective @ Kinsman Robinson Galleries
November 22 - December 20, 2014
Featuring poetry by Armand Ruffo
36-page colour catalogue

Norval Morrisseau's major dealer and principal gallery is showcasing the fourth retrospective of Morrisseau's artwork from Nov 22 until Dec 20, 2014.

In 1989, the gallery welcomed Norval Morrisseau to the stable and hosted his comeback exhibition "The Shaman's Return", an event which wowed collectors and critics alike in 1990. KRG’s principals possess extensive experience and knowledge of Morrisseau’s artwork. The gallery co-authored two hardcover books along with Norval Morrisseau. KRG has held four catalogued exhibitions since Norval Morrisseau passed away in 2007.

Norval Morrisseau came to prominence following his first sold-out exhibition at Toronto's Pollock Gallery in 1962. Time Magazine (Sep 28, 1962) reported, “Few exhibits in Canadian history have touched off a greater immediate stir than Morrisseau's.” It's a statement that was true half a century ago and still holds true today. Five decades later, Morrisseau's artwork is notable for its kaleidoscopic colour, bold black outlines and sacred imagery. His signature style has cemented the artist as an icon of Canadian art.
