Inuit Art/Eskimo Art printmaking was started in the late 1950's. Inuit/Eskimo artists used the best paper and the finest finishes in the production of their lively and vivid Inuit paintings.
The first compilation of Inuit painting and printmaking was issued by the Inuit Artist/Eskimo Artists from Cape Dorset in 1960. Many of these works of art are sold at prices, at auctions in the secondary market today which is remotely by far beyond what the original Inuit artist would have ever imagined.
Eskimo art has become a world notarized art form desirable for both its simplicity (the early years) and its high quality. There are many Inuit Painting artists who are devoted to painting their Inuit people's cultural heritage. It is a unique way for them to share their beliefs, their dreams and visions and even their life history.
