About this title


Cornelius Krieghoff (1815-1872) is one of the most popular and well-known Canadian painters. His work was greatly appreciated in his lifetime and continues to captivate new audiences today. Krieghoff's subject matter was Canadians, French Canadians, Native peoples, and landscapes - mostly people at work and play in the outdoors.

Krieghoff is a highly readable and authoritative account of the life and work of Cornelius Krieghoff, illustrated throughout with reproductions of his paintings. Krieghoff's canvases attract some of the highest prices paid for Canadian paintings; they hang in galleries throughout the world, and have been reproduced more often than the work of any other Canadian painter.

Krieghoff's works are enjoyed for their humor, sparkle, universality, and lusty portrayal of mid-nineteenth century life.
