Lot 28 NICHOLAS DE GRANDMAISON, R.C.A. PAPOOSE pastel on paper signed 17.75 ins x 14.75 ins; 45.1 cms x 37.5 cms Provenance: Private Collection, Toronto Literature: Hugh A. Dempsey, History in Their Blood, Douglas & Mc Intyre, Vancouver/Toronto, 1982, pages 26-34. Nicholas de Grandmaison\’s (1882-1978) portraits of Plains Indians provide an impressive documentation of the native peoples of western Canada. After immigrating to Canada in the 1930\’s, de Grandmaison was immediately drawn to Canada\’s indigenous peoples and their history. The majority of his artistic output would focus on capturing their story as written on their faces. De Grandmaison\’s skill with portraiture rests with his ability to capture the unique spirit of his subject. It was reputed that even many years after their creation, when his paintings and pastels were taken to reserves for identification (typically, they are only titled with generic descriptions like this lot), the details of the sitter were so precise that these subjects, now aged or departed, would bring tears to the eyes of community members.

Literature:

Note:

De Grandmaison did not often title his portraits of women and children, preferring to label them generically as \“Squaw\” or \“Papoose.\” Belatedly, he realized the historical significance of recording the names of all his subjects, as he did for the Indian Chiefs he drew. Nonetheless, his portraits of children such as this lot were far from being stock types and were said to be so faithful to their subjects that, according to Dempsey, a relative might exclaim: \“Ki-ai-yowww\” or \“it\’\’\’\’s just like him (or her).\”

Browning, Montana, is a town in Glacier Country situated on American Blackfeet Indian lands directly across the border from Canada. It is part of the Blackfoot Confederacy. These lands were among the places visited by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in their Corps of Discovery Expedition (1804 - 1806). The Blood Indians, or Kainai people of Alberta, are also a part of the Blackfoot Confederacy, and were among the many different groups of Plains Indians that de Grandmaison immortalized in his work.
