"The Westerkirk Works of Art Morrisseau Collection is good news for Canada, great news for the protection of our shared cultural legacy, and a celebration of the most important Canadian artist of the past several decades.

Norval Morrisseau fearlessly brought us a whole new way of looking at the world, revitalizing the vision of Canada's First Nations in a visual language that even children can clearly understand. He spoke for an era, defining what it means to be Canadian - before his time, Morrisseau presented a major concern for the environment and humanity's place within nature, racial harmony, and the rights of Canada's First Nations"

"The paintings had apparently been collected over many years, by the owner of the Elmwood Spa, Sherry Brydson, a passionate collector of Canadian fine art, who had clearly spared no expense to get the best paintings that were available. She had been advised in her collecting by Joseph McLeod, still regarded as the top expert on Norval Morrisseau’s art from the 1960s to the 1980s period. He had supplied many of the paintings through his gallery."
