‘Katajaktuit’ Throat Singers Gathering by Kenojuak Ashevak, RCA, OC – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 1991 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: no condition noted.
Description by Artist: No description by artist found.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Twenty throat singing women wearing amauti gather together with four birds in this happy and well-balanced composition by Kenojuak Ashevak. Interestingly the six women that in perspective appear to be at the forefront are the smallest of them all. It is possible they might be little girls learning throat-singing with the grownups. Another interesting observation is that normally, I see much use of animals, birds in Kenojuak’s compositions, but perhaps this may be a piece with most use of people in it. Please do comment if you know of other titles with similar or more use of human figures in its composition.
