Description:
CORNELIUS KRIEGHOFF THE INDIAN BASKET SELLER oil on canvas, laid down on board signed 11 ins x 9 ins; 27.9 cms x 21.6 cms Provenance: Private Collection, Ontario Literature: J. Russell Harper, Krieghoff , Key Porter Books, Toronto, 1999, page 126, Fig. 116 for a very similar work entitled The Indian Woman Basket Seller, reproduced in colour. Note: Harper writes: “During his years in Quebec City Krieghoff continued to paint Indians. Increasingly he viewed them romantically and at the same time he shrunk them into landscapes... Nevertheless, he continued (also) to paint small canvases of single Indian figures. Women in black hats wander up hills laden with great festoons of baskets (fig.116) or carry cradle boards as they pick their way through craggy mounds of ice cakes crossing the St. Lawrence in front of the city. They are reminiscent of the women in Montreal streets, but are infinitely more appealing as a result of increased details and unsurpassed craftsmanship.”

Lot Description Cornelius David Krieghoff (1815-1872), or Martin Somerville (fl.1839-1856) A Moccasin seller outside the artist’’’’s studio (c.1849) [Marie of Montreal] oil on canvas laid down on board 13 ¼ x 9 3/8in. (33.6 x 23.8cm.) Lot Condition Report I confirm that I have read this Important Notice and agree to its terms. View Condition Report Pre-Lot Text KRIEGHOFF AND HIS FOLLOWERS Lots 305-321 Literature J. Russell Harper, Krieghoff, Toronto, 1979, p.x, illustrated in colour fig.3 (‘A Red Indian Woman outside the Artist’’’’s studio. late 1840s’’’’). D. Reid, Krieghoff, Images of Canada, Toronto, 1999, p.59, illustrated fig.5 (‘A red Indian woman outside the artist’’’’s studio, c.1849’’’’): ‘All [Krieghoff’’’’s] Native subjects seem to be from the period after the January 1847 exhibition, and none may date from before 1848. Natives were part of the life of Montreal, particularly Mohawks from the Caughnawaga (Kahnawake) Reserve on the south shore of the St Lawrence at Lachine, about eleven kilometres upriver from the city. Women from Caughnawaga brought basketry, beadwork, and other traditional fine women’’’’s work into Montreal to sell, and a painting of the period that has been attributed to Krieghoff, but may be by Somerville, shows such a vendor offering a pouch and highly decorated moccasins for sale in front of the building in which both artists had their studios.’’’’ View Lot Notes >
