CANADA: NATIVE ENCAMPMENT.
JAMESON, ANNA BROWNELL. 1794-1860. Indian Encampment / Lake Huron. Pencil heightened with white on paper laid down to board, 255 x 165 mm, c.1838, title and attribution in pencil to verso, some darkening to paper.
Provenance: collected by Sir Francis Bond Head (1793-1875), sixth Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada (1835-1838), thence by descent.

Anna Brownell Jameson is best remembered as the first English art historian. In 1836 she was summoned to Canada by her absentee husband, Robert Simpson Jameson, who had been appointed to the Court of Chancery of the province of Upper Canada. When he failed to meet her at New York, she was left to make her own way alone in winter to Toronto, later chronicling her journey in Winter Studies and Summer Rambles in Canada, published in 1838. Prior to returning to Great Britain that year, she undertook a journey to the Native settlements in Canada; she explored Lake Huron and saw much of emigrant and First Nations life unknown to colonial travelers.
