Description

Wanderings of an Artist Among the Indians of North America is a 2016 publication from Royal Ontario Museum Press celebrating the work of iconic Canadian artist Paul Kane (1810-1871). Published more than a century and a half after its original 1859 publication, Wanderings of an Artist among the Indians of North America documents the artist’s years of travel between Toronto and the Pacific coast. The book depicts Kane’s journeys, the people he met, and the stories he heard, and includes 97 images referenced directly in Kane’s narrative, with 91 paintings drawn from the ROM’s collection. Including an introduction by ROM Assistant Curator Kenneth Lister, this publication realizes Kane’s ambition to present a complete, illustrated account of his travels during the late 1840s and the final years of the fur-trade period. The book's 25 chapters have detailed encounters and colour plates. An in-depth index is included along with a fold-out map, and record of the 1846 census for the Nations of the Pacific Northwest.
