Abstract (English)

On the occasion of an exhibition of drawings by 39 Cape Dorset artists, Ryan (in an interview with Blodgett) reflects on the unusual and unique nature of the images produced in the late 1950s-early 1960s and the process of identifying the artists who produced them. Includes biographical notes compiled by Gustavison, quotations from interviews with the artists or their family and friends, and a map showing the location of campsites in the area. 37 bibl. ref.
