Moving into the Canadian collection at the National Gallery, I'm starting with Josepth Ourne, a portrait of a young Aboriginal woman by the Quebec artist Joseph Legare, painted circa 1840.
There are several paintings in the Gallery's collection by the artist Cornelius Krieghoff, a Dutch born artist who spent years living in Canada. This is an oil painting entitled White Horse Inn By Moonlight, painted in 1851.
Another Krieghoff is this oil painting, The Chaudiere, which depicts the Chaudiere Falls on the Ottawa River as they would have appeared at the time he painted this in 1858.
Winter Landscape, Laval is the title of this Krieghoff oil painting from 1862.
These two paintings are both Krieghoffs as well. They are both takes on the same subject, a waterfall in Quebec. The top one is from 1854, titled The Saint Anne Falls Near Quebec from Above And Looking Upward. The lower painting, from 1855, is The Saint Anne Falls.
This painting is by an artist named John Bell-Smith. The oil portrait is titled Miss Amelia Boddy. It dates back to 1845.
I peeked in at the enclosed courtyard garden while I was passing through this part of the Gallery.
And today I'll finish up with this pair, by the artist Paul Kane. The top one is Chinook Indians In Front Of Mount Hood, an oil painting dating circa 1851-56. Its companion also dates to those years, and is titled Interior Of A Clallam Winter Lodge, Vancouver Island.
