Kenojuak Ashevak, ᑭᓄᔭᐊ ᐊᓯᕗ

GEESE FRIGHTENED BY A FOX


KENOJUAK ASHEVAK (1927-2013), E7-1035, CAPE DORSET
GEESE FRIGHTENED BY A FOX

stonecut, 1960, 8/50, unframed

21.5" x 23.75" — 54.6 x 60.3 cm.

Note:
“...in the print by Kenojuak entitled Geese Frightened by Fox, the fox leaps at a gosling caught on the ground. The exaggerated neck and bill of the parent above reveals its alarm. Here, Kenojuak has captured the remarkably tense exchange between parent and offspring, predator and prey.”

Bernadette Driscoll, Uumajut, Animal Imagery in Inuit Art, The Winnipeg Art Gallery, 1985, pg. 33.

Estimate: $7,000—10,000
