Author Donald Ellis, Dawn Ades, Colin Browne, Marie Mauzé

Art of the Arctic: Reflections of the Unseen examines the history and artistic influence of Inuit masks and ivories, and their relationship to, and influence on, the Surrealists.

The first half of the book illustrates 49 important and rare Inuit masks, collected over the last 40 years, and discusses the profound, but often understated influence on the Surrealists and Surrealism in three in-depth essays. The second half of the book, in a tumble format, illustrates the Wolf Collection of ancient Inuit art from 200 BC to the eighteenth century.

Beautifully finished with silver cloth and a printed translucent dust jacket, the book is physically impressive in its own right, with highly detailed illustrations of these historically significant artworks. Complemented by texts from Donald Ellis, president and founder of Donald Ellis Gallery Ltd. and expert in the field of antique North American Indian art, and by Dawn Ades, Colin Browne and Marie Mauzé, world leaders in research on Surrealism.
