"My art speaks and will continue to speak, transcending barriers of other forces that may be divisive, fortifying the greatness of the spirit that has always been the foundation of the Ojibwa people." - Norval Morrisseau
The Floral on Yellow design is inspired by an acrylic on canvas painting produced by Norval Morrisseau in 1993, titled Untitled (Floral on Yellow).
Norval Morrisseau (1931-2007) described himself as a "born artist" who had a compulsion to draw from his earliest memories. He was a prolific artist and published author who was also a cornerstone to the art movement considered the Woodland School of Art. Morrisseau was the recipient of numerous honourary degrees and the Aboriginal Lifetime Achievement Award. He was also a member of the Order of Canada and the Royal Academy of Arts, and the first First Nations artist to have a solo exhibit in the National Gallery of Canada which now houses a permanent collection of his art. In recognition of his talents and contributions to First Nations communities across Canada, he was awarded a Great Eagle Feather and was appointed as Grand Shaman by the Ojibwa.
Lattimer Gallery hosts a selection of original artworks by Morrisseau including prints and paintings.
