Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
Watercolors of life in a different Greenland. ca. 1899. Isak of Igdlorpait, artist (1866-1903). An Inuit Greenlander who had lost the use of one arm which kept him from fishing and hunting, Isak tended goats at a Moravian mission. When the mission was abandoned in 1901, he presented a booklet with 48 watercolors as a gift to the last departing missionary. These are taken from the website of rarebookstudio.com, some of whose books, though not this one, I had the privilege of seeing at the antiquarian book fair here held last month.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
