Description

The Far North THE INUIT, A HISTORY THAT GOES BACK OVER 4,000 YEARS!

 

On their arrival in Siberia via the Bering Strait, they gradually moved on to Alaska, Canada and Greenland. Several cultures followed on from one another. First came the Pre-Dorset, followed by the Dorset and finally the Thule who settled from the 17th Century onwards. Today there are around 51,000 Inuit Canadians in around fifty villages covering an area of 3,000,000 km2, 6 times the size of France !

 

In 1948, the young painter James Houston arrived from Toronto and was beguiled by the quality of the objects sculpted by the Inuits, and started a very profitable export of what would later be called  : Inuit Art.

 

Their work on stone, whalebone or caribou antler and walrus ivory is inspired by the animal kingdom, hunting or shamanic spirits.

 

This anonymous folk art skill has in recent years become a recognised art in the Western world, with real artists, some of whom are sought after and listed.

 

As yet, very few people have been able to gaze upon the beauty and glimpse the purity of this art. This is why we wanted to present once again Inuit art sculptures from the large collection that we have amassed over the past 20 years, during many expeditions to Alaska, Canada, Greenland and as far as the North Pole

 

The museum is open every Saturday from 13 July 2019
