FREDERICK ARTHUR VERNER, O.S.A., A.R.C.A.
signed and dated 1878
11.5 ins x 18 ins; 28.6 cms x 45.7 cms
By 1878, Frederick Verner was at the height of his powers in depicting subjects such as this encampment. A generous serving of seven teepees as well as both overturned and upright canoes serve as the backdrop for the standing woman grinding corn and two small seated figures shown, perhaps gambling, at the centre right. Three additional figures populate the scene.
