Norval Morrisseau's major dealer and principal gallery is showcasing a biennial retrospective of Morrisseau's artwork from Nov 22 until Dec 20, 2014. "Norval Morrisseau 2014 Retrospective" features photographs of the revered artist and 46 original works of art in order to celebrate the iconic Canadian artist.

Join us on Saturday, November 22, at 2:00 pm as Sylvia Whitton, Associate Professor OCAD University and artist, gives a talk on Norval Morrisseau's use and development of colour.

Norval Morrisseau came to prominence following his first sold-out exhibition at Toronto's Pollock Gallery in 1962. Time Magazine (Sep 28, 1962) reported, "Few exhibits in Canadian history have touched off a greater immediate stir than Morrisseau's." It's a statement that was true half a century ago and still holds true today. Five decades later, Morrisseau's artwork is notable for its kaleidoscopic colour, bold black outlines and sacred imagery. Morrisseau's signature style has cemented the artist as an icon of Canadian art.

Celebrating 34 years in business, Kinsman Robinson Galleries (KRG) specializes in Norval Morrisseau art of exceptional calibre and significance. The gallery co-authored two hardcover books with Norval Morrisseau. Since 2008, KRG has consistently held biennial Morrisseau retrospectives with accompanying full-colour catalogues. This year's catalogue features poems written by Armand Garnet Ruffo, Associate Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at Queen's University, to accompany select illustrated paintings by Norval Morrisseau.
