Confederation announces return of stolen Norval Morrisseau paintings

Confederation College has announced that two Norval Morrisseau paintings, which had been stolen from the institution in 1981, have been returned. In 2018, the Demi-God Figure 1 and Demi-God Figure 2 paintings were offered to a Toronto-based art curator who recognized them as the stolen paintings. The paintings will be permanently installed in the Thunder Bay Art Gallery, and an official unveiling will take place once in-person events are allowed. “This is a fantastic resolution to a long-standing mystery,” said Confederation President Kathleen Lynch. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to see these culturally and historically important paintings returned to the College so they can be viewed and enjoyed by visitors to and citizens of northwestern Ontario.” Confederation Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
