Lot Report

Additional Images
  • LUKE ANGUHADLUQ (1895-1982)

"The uniqueness of Anguhadluq's drawings stems from his use of multiple perspectives, a formal device most simply applied in his animal imagery. He perceives them from different positions in space through successive moments of time. He combines these perceptions - an aerial view with a profile of the torso - causing a sense of transition and duration to arise"

Cynthia Waye, excerpt fromSanattiaqsimajut, Inuit Art from the Carleton University Art Gallery Collection, 2009, p. 92
