LUKE ANGUHADLUQ (1895-1982)
Estate of W.A. Ross MacFadden, Toronto, ON
In characteristic flattened perspective, Luke Anguhadluq gives us a summer scene – the harvesting of fish. Small clusters of figures appear beside their dwellings, men with gaffs laid out in a row, and mothers with their children and ulut (women’s knives) close at hand.
