Norval Morrisseau is the current Tom Thomson. Auction houses are building collections around his paintings. They give us a new way of seeing our Canadian society. They explain a world of mythology, representing a time in Canadian history and move us to a better understanding of who we are.
If you have a Canadian Art Collection and lack First Nations Art, you don't have a Canadian Art Collection.
