Description

‘Winter Owl’ by Lucy Qinnuayuak – Inuit Art – Baker Lake 1978 print collection presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.  Framing recommended for display.

Condition:          Vertical folds from paper handling, creased right top edge. Mild humidity stains along lower edge. Good otherwise. Image unaffected.  Price reflects condition.  Please refer to pictures for reference:

  • Pictures 4 and 5 show title and signature but also the minor humidity conditions in lower edge of paper.
  • Picture 6 taken at an angle against light, show in somewhat exaggerated for the vertical ripples.

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. Here we have a young little owl jumping with joy despite only having few small feathers.  Such simple and yet beautiful and hypnotic, form.
