Lot Report


Grasp Tight the Old Ways: Selections from the Klamer Family Collection of Inuit Art, Jean Blodgett, 1983, pg. 203, pl. 135


“Here Sackareasie has sensitively used the stencil printing technique to apply lighter and darker areas to his long-necked goose, thus distinguishing different parts of the body and achieving a certain degree of shading and modelling.
This and possibly one other uncatalogued print are the only graphics Sackareasie has done. He now lives in Akulivik.”
