Walker’s Inuit Art Auction – Bigger and Better

After the spectacular success of its first Inuit sale last November, Walker’s Fine Art & Estate Auctions will hold its second major Inuit art auction in Ottawa on May 3rd. This auction includes over 400 Inuit works from important Canadian and American estates and collections. This sale includes a truly impressive group of Inuit sculptures, prints and drawings, and hangings. Ingo Hessel, Inuit art curator and author of Inuit Art: An Introduction, has once again researched and written the auction catalogue. Ingo has officially joined Walker’s as Head of their Inuit Art Department.

Visitors to the Toronto preview are invited to attend an informal talk and Q&A on Inuit prints presented by Sandra Barz, whose landmark catalogue of Inuit prints, artists and printmakers is now available from the National Gallery of Canada on-line.
