‘SINKING OF THE TITANIC’, THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS SHIPWRECK – BY SHUVINAI ASHOONA

From the Art Canada Institute, 4 Devonshire Place, Toronto: “Shuvinai Ashoona, ‘Sinking Titanic’, 2012. Graphite and coloured pencil and Pentel pen on paper, collection of the Winnipeg Art Gallery; acquired with funds from the sale of Inuit prints. Photo credit: Ernest Mayer. Ship disasters have particular relevance for the artist because of the harbour sinking of supply ship RMS Nascopie in Kinngait (formerly Cape Dorset), summer of 1947. The sinking of the Nascopie figures in the work of many artists from the region.”
