Notes:
Paul Kane was born in Ireland but came to York (Toronto) as a boy. He studied painting at Upper Canada College and after working in Detroit, Michigan and Mobile, Alabama he went to Europe for two years to study his art. In the early 1830s, he lived in Cobourg and painted portraits of many prominent citizens. Having developed an interest in western Indians, Kane arranged to visit their territories, leaving Toronto in May 1846. He went as far west as Fort Vancouver on the Columbia and over to Victoria and returned in October 1848. His field sketches and watercolours are an important record of a period before photography. In 1853 he married Harriet Clench, the daughter of Cobourg's famous cabinetmaker, Freeman S. Clench. Returning to Toronto, he spent the next six years making a series of 100 large oil paintings from his work
