INTRODUCTION:

We wish you a good day to each and everyone. On Oct.1st, 2011, Mark Anthony Jacobson became the first native artist in Canadian history to launch and publish an authorized and official catalogue raisonne of his known artworks to date, preceding that of either Norval Morrisseau and the N.M.H.S. (The Norval Morrisseau Heritage Society). We extend a warm welcome to the many friends, collectors, researchers, galleries, museums and other institutions both educational and otherwise worldwide to this authorized resource on Mark Anthony Jacobson artworks. This database will offer and ensure impeccable pedigree for each piece of Jacobson art, will be an excellent source of security from forgeries and will guarantee the authenticity of your various Mark Anthony Jacobson artworks by offering solid provenance and documentation which is found throughout this catalogue.

There will be many updates to this catalogue raisonne over time. So far, we have found a wide variety of many hundreds of Jacobson artworks and there are still about 800 pieces which we hope will be found that date from 1987 to 2010 and will be added to this database. In the meantime, please feel free to browse the many paintings, drawings, prints and other media which the artist has created. This database will continue to grow with images and stories to his artworks from the past, to the present new updates of his latest works, and the future of newly discovered treasures. We thank you for expressing your interest in collecting, marketing, and educating yourselves about the art and legacy of one of Canada's most exciting shamanistic woodland artists. All our relations.

NOTES
Story for paintings: It is a privilege and honor to give a voice to our animal relations. The vision was inspired by the intricate relationships that all of creation has with each other. All these things are interconnected. Our own survival is dependant on proper management of the earths resources. The spirit of Mother Earth knows this. As we trudge the road of future destiny, we must realize that in order to continue moving forward as a human species, we must look after all aspects of creation much better. We live in a time where every action has significant reaction. The safe guarding of the natural resources are our duty to not only look after for our current generation, but indeed for future generations. We must take this lead. Creation is patiently waiting for our collective response. The time is now. Our ties that bind with the animal kingdom are surely on guard. The spirits of our ancestry are keen to see change. We have a responsibility to our selves, to one another and to the spirit of life itself. These animal clans are waiting, their own survival depends on us. The elements are changing, they are speaking in signs and symbols. These paintings are my way to honor them, to honor our Mother Earth and our sacred connections to the changing rhythms of the sun and moon. Chi-meegwetch and all my relations, MAJ
