Historical Context:
As an Ojibway Indian living on the the northwest shores of Lake Superior, Norval Morrisseau started painting in 1959, after he received a vision telling him to do so. He is the first to break tribal rules and actually draw out legends and design representative shapes to illustrate his folklore. Morrisseau was the founder of an art movement popularly called Woodland Indian Art.
