MOSQUITOS ATTACKING DOG


PITSEOLAK ASHOONA, O.C., R.C.A. (1904-1983), E7-1100, CAPE DORSET / KINNGAIT
MOSQUITOS ATTACKING DOG

stonecut, 1961, 30/50, framed

14 x 12 in — 35.6 x 30.5 cm

Provenance:
a Montreal private collection

Note:
Both in summer and winter we used to move a lot. In summer there were always very big mosquitoes. I have made many drawings of moving camp in summertime and I always put in the mosquitoes. I do not like insects. (Quote from the artist in Dorothy Eber ed., Pitseolak: Pictures out of my life, Design Collaborative Books/Oxford UP, 1971, unpag.)

For those of you who do not believe that Arctic mosquitoes are the size of small birds, now you have your proof!


Estimate: $1,000—1,500
