"In three essays, and the quotations that accompany the paintings, we learn about Morrisseau's approach to his work and the important historical and cultural influences that shaped his art. He tells us, in his own words, about his travels to the dream-like House of Invention, his source of inspiration for both content and colour. (W)e learn of the myths and legends of his ancestors, which had a profound influence on his brush, and how they relate to his work. The book now contains some of the most complex and colourful paintings the artist has ever produced and is complemented by an essay by Donald C. Robinson, in which he describes the painter's unique approach to the physical act of painting, and explains how Morrisseau has developed as a master technician and colourist despite having little formal training."
