"Art from the Arctic: Inuit Prints and Sculpture" (11/20/09-2/14/10) exhibition label text:

Parr’s style is one of the most instantly recognizable of all the Cape Dorset artists. He spent his life living on the land as a hunter and came to Cape Dorset in his late sixties when his health no longer allowed him to live the nomadic life. He was encouraged to draw at age sixty-eight and though his style was considered very primitive and child-like, his images tell the story of the traditional Inuit ways through the eyes of one who had lived them for most of his life.
