"People always ask if I was influenced by Picasso. No one ever asked Picasso if he was influenced by Canadian art, and yet look at his masks. Who's to say Picasso hadn't been influenced by us?"
Daphne Odjig (b. 1919), C.M., O.B.C.,LL.D., R.C.A.
Note: Daphne Odjig was nick-named "Picasso's grandmother" by Norval Morrisseau because he considered her artistic style part Woodlands Native and part European influenced.
