Topical Exhibits: Inuit Art of the Far North
Print · Painting
The Inuit started producing prints in the winter of 1957 in Cape Dorset (now known as Kinngait Range). At first, designs were engraved onto the surface of slabs of soap stone and then printed using a single color, either black or navy blue. Subsequently, they mastered the process of Japanese Ukiyoe print-making as well as Western engraving techniques, and produced works that were more colorful. Today, the Inuit draw with colored pencils, crayons, and watercolors.
