Art Issue by Canada Post – Daphne Odjig

A Canadian artist of Aboriginal ancestry, Daphne Odjig was born September 11, 1919,\"\" This Art Canada issue celebrating her work includes three paintings representative of her powerful style:Pow-wow Dancer (1978, acrylic on canvas), Spiritual Renewal (1984, acrylic on canvas) and Pow-wow(1969, acrylic on board). According to designer Hélène L’Heureux, “Each painting is totally different from the other two. But they are all so very much Odjig’s work, they represent the whole of what her work has been about over the years. The trick was in finding a way to frame such diverse pieces to bring a sense of unity to all three stamps.”(
