George Morrison: Anishinaabe Expressionist Artist
Vizenor, Gerald
American Indian Quarterly, v30 n3-4 p646-660 Sum-Fall 2006
In this article, the author discusses the life and works of an Anishinaabe expressionist artist George Morrison. Morrison was an eminent expressionist painter with a singular romantic vision and an erudite sense of natural reason and liberty. He created an elusive shimmer of "endless space," the color and eternal motion of nature. The horizons he painted were inspired by nature and lightened by his watch and visual memories of Lake Superior near the Grand Portage Reservation in Minnesota. Morrison was inspired by expressionism, an art movement already underway at the time of his birth. In this article the author explains what an Anishinaabe artist is. (Contains 39 notes.)
