The very best Inuit sculptures

I collect Inuit art and the Brosseau gallery is head and shoulders above any other.I have visited this gallery every time I am in Quebec City and will continue to do so.

The glass window walls and sterile interior lends a big city ambience but with a cozy feel. Can't afford a sculpture? Then head on over to the Holiday Tree corner. I bought an igloo and some real mukluks there. People marvel at them when I'm entertaining for the holidays. Hit the right back and you can always bargain a little.... More

Go to the QC City Museum of Art to see the incredible pieces, all made by Inuit ("Eskimo") artists. The collection is too big to see all of it at the M of A, but you will get a good idea of its components.

Had the good fortune to have someone explain the meaning of some of the sculptures and place them in context for us. The art had an hypnotic effect. One could stay there for a long time just being with it.

Just fantastic Inuit carvings. It can get pricey, but you can negotiate. Do not buy ivory pieces if you're a Yankee. You'll never get it past customs and the store will not mail it to you. Sorry. Amusingly enough, as beautiful as the pieces are, the very best carvings were sent to the Museum of Civilization. If anything, if you... More

We passed by Galerie Art Inuit Brousseau on a carriage tour, and it was pointed out as one of the best Inuit art galleries in the world. What was in the window was amazing so I knew I'd be going back. The gallery used to be both a museum and a gallery and the quality of the pieces show. The... More

I have been the the Louvres and I can tell you that they have not send their best pieces for this exposition. When your starting your visit, the museum will pass you a small book so you can read about every pieces of this exposition. Good lock after that because it is not easy to follow the numbers inside each... More

Like many galleries, this is really a shop. The inuit art is interesting: it's mostly sculptures from stone or bone. The staff are fairly knowledgeable about the art - in a general sort of way - and where it comes from. They told me that the art is not particularly 'traditional' to the inuit culture. It is a modern income... More

July 2005 - went to this museum which I had previously visited & loved. There is still a superlative Inuit gallery run by the Brousseau family, but the museum no longer exists. The collection has been bought by a museum in Quebec and will be given a permanent home, although it is not operational yet. Sorry I don't have more... More
