I left off yesterday with works by Cornelius Krieghoff. Here are two more, both paintings of waterfalls. The Passing Storm, Saint-Ferreol dates to 1854. The Saint Anne Falls is from 1855.
This is a self portrait by the artist, also dating to 1855.
Here we have Sister Saint-Alphonse, an 1841 portrait by Antoine Plamondon.
Two more portraits, by two different artists. Thomas Chandler Haliburton is a circa 1835 portrait by William Valentine.
Close by is this one by Albert Gallatin Hoit, an American artist who did some work in Canada and had an influence on portraiture in the Maritimes. This is Johanna Robinson Hazen, and dates to 1852.
Two more portraits, by the same artist. Robert Field painted
these in 1808, and features a married couple. Lady Croke is at top, with Sir Alexander Croke at the bottom of this pair.
Some of the portraits have compelling eyes.ReplyDelete
Nice to see the fashion of the time...ReplyDelete
All very serious, smiling wasn't in fashion for portraits I assume. Fabulous works though.ReplyDelete
Although they are all very well and beautiful painted, I prefer the landscapes above the portraits.ReplyDelete
Wonderful collection of portraits. Take care, have a happy day!
@Linda: they do.ReplyDelete
@Italiafinlandia: it is.
@Gemel: quite true.
@Jan: I do too.
Canada's art history is rich, varied and meritorious.ReplyDelete
Who would have thought back then that someday someone would take an instant picture of the portrait for which they painstakingly sat?ReplyDelete
...water was an important part of the settlement of the New World.ReplyDelete
I find self portraits fascinating.ReplyDelete
Again the portraits are magnificent and so are the waterfall paintings.ReplyDelete
