Historic Paddle Illustration: Another Krieghoff Print - Indian Wigwam...

Found another version of the C. Krieghoff painting, "Indian Wigwam in Lower Canada" first discussed in this 2010 post.

Indian Wigwam in Lower Canada
Cornelius Krieghoff (1815-1872)
About 1850, 19th century

The Toronto Public Library has a flickr page documented some works in their Special Collections. While browsing around, I came across a brighter version of Krieghoff's original oil painting. This one is a lithograph redone with watercolours.

Paddle Closeup

This colourful chevron pattern was the basis for Nigel's painted decoration on his Edenwood Northwoods paddle (see original post here).
