In the 20th century the Inuit people of Canada, formerly known as the Eskimo, achieved extraordinary expression in the visual arts through print and sculpture. Reflecting the confluence of traditional ways of life and the contemporary world, Inuit artists developed a distinctive visual language utilizing modern materials and techniques. Through their art, the Inuit continue a vital story-telling tradition amongst themselves and the broader public.
