Notes from DaVic Gallery: Reference: image exhibited and illustrated in The Inuit Print (1977) cat. 50; also illustrated in Routledge and Jackson, Pudlo: Thirty Years of Drawing (1990) fig. 11. Marie Routledge analyses the evolution of Pudlo’s imagery. She singles out Ecclesiast for special mention: “Around 1968 or 1969 Pudlo’s images of women become focused in a group of drawings that combine female and angel imagery with playing-card motifs. The best-known example is the 1969 stonecut Ecclesiast. The woman in Ecclesiast, garbed in a long, robe-like dress and wearing what appears to be a tight-fitting headdress that frames her face in a triangular opening, is reminiscent of a playing-card Queen” (1990 pp. 23-24).
