Scope and content
A full length portrait of Père (Joseph) Papineau, father of Louis-Joseph, shown in profile from the left. This watercolour, dated August 22, has a corresponding entry in Katherine Jane Ellice's diary where she mentions sketching "old Papineau." (Canada: Oberon, 1975. p. 75). At the time she was on board a steamer travelling down Lake Champlain, beginning her "American Tour."
Watercolour removed from album. This work was originally glued to a secondary support. The album page, folio 19, was cut to frame the image that was glued to its verso. Original mount attached separately.
