Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes

“In marked contrast to the experimental Cape Dorset prints, the 1959 Cape Dorset print collection includes 10 unmodulated black on white prints, amounting to roughly one quarter of the entire annual collection. Black on white is seen in similar proportions in annual collections through the early 1960’s, becoming a mainstay stylistic tool for the next few years, especially for printmaker Lukta Qiatsuk. This emphasis on black and white owes a debt to the Japanese modern printmakers who affirmed the artistic legitimacy and expressive power of the simple, monotone black print.”
