Dempsey, History in Their Blood: The Indian Portraits of Nicholas de Grandmaison, 1982, Introduction by J. Russell Harper, page 10 Nicholas de Grandmaison was born in Russia into an aristocratic family. After training in London, he emigrated to Canada in 1923. By 1927, he had found the subject that would be his life's work - portraits of the native peoples of the plains of western Canada and the northern United States. De Grandmaison was the last of a chain of artists who depicted native peoples, such as Cornelius Krieghoff and Paul Kane in Canada and, in America, George Catlin, Winold Reiss and W. Langdon Kihn. Traditional native life was ending and de Grandmaison felt the urgency to record these people - predominantly the Blackfoot (Blood), who had a large reserve east of Calgary, and the Assiniboine (Stoney). He chose sitters who were strong, pure representatives of their race, and his viewpoint was idealized and romantic. As Russell Harper wrote, "He found in them traits of superior beings who belonged among the world's aristocratic peoples and held their heads in haughty pride." Blackfoot Indian is a superb portrait - this man radiates strength, dignity and nobility, deftly portrayed in pastel, a medium of which de Grandmaison was a master.
