For analysis of the artist’s drawings see Ingo Hessel: “The Drawings of Parr: A Closer Look” in Inuit Art Quarterly, Fall 1988.

Parr began working with colour around 1963 and took to it enthusiastically. His style changed: the drawings became looser as well as narrative and more action-oriented, rather than simply displays of animals and humans.
