Restricted DAISY Zip (CELA)

Norval Morrisseau (19322007), Ojibway shaman-artist, drew his first sketches at age six in the sand on the shores of Lake Nipigon. By the end of his tumultuous life, the prolific self-taught artist was sought by collectors, imitated by forgers and received the Order of Canada. Ruffo evokes the artist's life from childhood to death, including his breakthrough exhibition at the Pollock Gallery in Toronto; his heartwrenching battle with alcoholism, then Parkinson's disease; and exultant "Shaman's Return" to national status in the Canadian art scene and his solo show at The National Gallery of Canada. Ruffo also draws upon his own Ojibway heritage and experiences to provide insight into Morrisseaus life and iconography from an Ojibway perspective. 2014.
