Norval Morrisseau

Norval Morrisseau was a legend in his own time. An Ojibway Indian living like a nomad on the northwest shores of Lake Superior, Morrisseau started painting in 1959, after he received a “vision” telling him to do so. He is the first Indian to break the tribal rules of setting down Indian legends in picture form for the white man to see and the first Indian to actually draw these legends and design representative shapes to illustrate his folklore.

At first he painted on birch bark because that was all he had. He felt he was chosen to set down the great heritage of the Ojibway – to pass it on, in some form of documentation, the traditions and life-force of his tribe before it finally disappeared forever. In 1960 he was discovered by Jack Pollock, a Toronto art dealer, who brought 42 Morrisseau paintings back to Toronto and sold them all within 24 hours. Today Morrisseau paintings have sold for up to $175,000.00 and his original prints are eagerly collected.
