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
