Three Birds with a Fish
‘Three Birds with a Fish’ by Lucy Qinnuayuak – Inuit Art – Cape Dorset 1969 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.
Condition: Good condition – Professionally restored for discoloration, paper folds, tears and overall handling marks. Paper was weak for treatment that overall paper had to be backed with starch paper to support the overall print. Result is clean strong image on solid stronger paper backing. Some minor paper discoloration remains mildly visible from the original paper being previously framed and exposed. Price reflects condition noted.
Description by Artist: No description by artist available.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Lucy Qinnuayuak was prolific and drew many different subjects, but surely it is for her whimsical birds that she is best remembered. Three birds perhaps fighting over the one fish that one of the birds may have just caught. The smaller of the birds appears to be looking at the viewer as if asking your help to get the fish from the other birds. Simply lovely and clean image. Rare and beautiful find!
