Portrait Of James Wolfe at Quebec is by J.C.S. Schaak, done around 1766, portraying the British general whose forces won at the decisive Battle Of The Plains Of Abraham, but who lost his life at that place during the French and Indian War.
His French counterpart also died of his wounds at that battle. This is Portrait Of Louis-Joseph de Montcalm, by an unknown artist, dating to the early 1800s.
Here we have two views from Quebec City at that time, by the same artist, Dominic Serres, done in 1760. A View Of The Treasury And Jesuits College, Quebec City is at top, and A View Of The Church Of Notre-Dame-de-la-Victoire is below.
More art of the period: four portraits of First Nations chiefs who traveled to Britain to meet with Queen Anne. Artist John Verelst painted them.
New France fell, and power in North America came to Britain (whilst setting the stage for a dust-up south of the border with those colonials of the Thirteen Colonies just a few years later). How to manage a place with various First Nations tribes, a lot of French Canadiens, and new challenges? Pragmatism and compromise.
Here we have two portraits: Gabriel-Elzear Teachereau had fought against the British but ended up making a success of himself in the British administration. At right is Sir Guy Carleton, who governed here from 1766-1778.
A panel and portrait here is where I'll leave off for today, featuring Frances Brooke, a writer of the period.
