Description:
Cornelius David Krieghoff 1815 - 1872 Canadian Trapper on Snowshoes oil on canvas signed and on verso titled on the gallery label 10 3/4 x 8 1/2 in 27.3 x 21.6cm Provenance: Vose Galleries, Boston Private Collection, Toronto Cornelius Krieghoff's interest in depicting Canada's First Nations peoples began while living in the Montreal region in the 1840s, and continued after settling in 1853 in Quebec City. He portrayed them going about their daily life and developed an approach to painting the figure, not as a portrait, but as a specific archetype. This work belongs to Krieghoff's tradition of single figure subjects of Canada's First Nations peoples. His depictions often place hunters, trappers or moccasin sellers in the centre of the scene, moving towards their destination within a rich Canadian landscape. This work is a fine example of Krieghoff's delicate handling, evident in the swaying threads of the ceinture fl�ch�e and in the dusting of powdered snow that rises from the figure's snowshoes. The First Nations subject and the snow-filled setting make this work a quintessential Krieghoff. $20,000 ~ $30,000 CAD

Lot # 146 Cornelius David Krieghoff 1815 - 1872 Canadian Racing Across the Ice, Quebec oil on canvas on board signed 13 x 20 in 33 x 50.8cm Provenance: Continental Galleries, Montreal Private Collection, Montreal Racing Across the Ice, Quebec is an especially interesting example of Cornelius Krieghoff's scenes of horse-drawn sleighs. In addition to the artist's careful observation of detail, nuance and colour, we have French Canadian politics. The two sleighs, finely painted but completely different in their styles, are each carrying three men and are drawn by galloping horses. They are political rivals - the Parti rouge racing against the Parti bleu. After The Act of Union (formerly The British North America Act of 1840) united Upper and Lower Canada, the Parti rouge and Parti bleu developed in the ensuing years. Their party colours are designated by the ribbons on the horse's bridles, which fly in the wind as they race for political pride. Quebec's Citadel is seen in the distance, sitting like a quiet observer atop Cap Diamant, and the angular forms of the St. Lawrence River's ice, crushed up and piled like barriers alongside the ice road, contain the race, adding tension and excitement. The ice and snow, distant city and sky are all finely handled in varying tones of winter whites.

Description:
Lot 71 CORNELIUS DAVID KRIEGHOFF (canadian 1815-1872) NATIVE WOMAN CROSSING THE SNOW WITH TRADE GOODS Signed and dated 'C. Krieghoff 1861' bottom right, oil on canvas, painted in the oval 12 x 9 in. ( 30.5 x 22.9cm) provenance: Private Collection, United Kingdom. note: Dennis Reid has kindly confirmed the authenticity of this painting on the basis of an electronically transmitted image. Estimate $5,000-8,000 Not relined; the canvas has uneven rippling, protrusions and there are numerous areas with missing spots/flakes of paint, as seen in catalogue photo. In the natural light, part of the upper sky appears to have some minor blistering in the paint surface. Under u.v. light, the painting appears to be unrestored. We do note that the whitish clouds appear a bit darker than the rest of the sky under u.v., and that the monochromatic outlying areas centering the painted oval also have differing hues under u.v., but we think in both cases the color distinctions under u.v. are due to pigments used, and not due to restoration. The signature does not appear to be reinforced - it is slightly dark under u.v. but again due to pigment color in our opinion. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid.
