Product Description
Cornelius Krieghoff Boxed Notecards
A musician, a wanderer, Cornelius Krieghoff (Canadian, b. Netherlands, 1815–d. USA, 1872), son of a Netherlandish mother and German father, intrepidly set out from his childhood home in Germany before he was twenty years old, and after an extended European tour crossed the Atlantic. A stint in the United States Army, which he spent sketching the bloody Seminole Wars, permitted Krieghoff to set up a studio in Rochester, New York.

But it was in Canada that the artist found his calling, and four of his paintings achieved a celebrity that enabled him to sell lithographic reproductions by subscription. His specialty was wintry and autumnal landscapes featuring Canada’s native people, hunters, and French Canadian settlers.

Krieghoff made a number of visits to Europe, spending years in France, Italy, and Germany. After a peripatetic life, he settled in Chicago, where he is buried.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Indians in the Employ of the Hudson Bay Company at a Portage, 1858
The Fur Trader in a Toboggan, c. 1846
On Lake Laurent, 1863
Montmorency Falls, 1853
