Blazing Figures: A Life of Robert Markle, hardcover ed


Blazing Figures: A Life of Robert Markle is the newly released biography of Mohawk artist Robert Markle (1936-1990). Robert Markle was considered an infamous figure on the Canadian cultural scene for almost three decades. His paintings and drawings celebrating the female nude were deemed obscene by Ontario courts in 1965, and Markle defended them on national television, emphasizing what he considered a crucial distinction between eroticism and pornography. Although Markle was a Mohawk who employed Native symbolism in his later work, he refused to identify himself as a Native painter.
