“A master Kwakwaka’wakw carver, Beau Dick was a supremely talented artist who infused his work with his culture and his soul.
“When he was doing these masks and these prints and these poles, he was really breathing life into them. When he looked at the finished product, it wasn’t art. It was a tradition. It had a story, it had a history,” his daughter Linnea Dick says. “The things he made were really alive.” “

Inuit, First Nations & Métis Art
Waddington’s is internationally recognized as one of the leading authorities in marketing Inuit Art. No other auction house has been as intrinsically linked to the development of a market for this art form. From our first landmark auction in 1978 of the William Eccles Collection, Waddington’s has offered thousands of works, set record prices, and expanded the market well beyond Canada’s borders. Our legacy of successful Inuit Art auctions, our ability to achieve continually increasing values and our creation of an international market have been key factors in validating Inuit art as a whole and establishing it as an integral part of the Canadian Art scene.
