Scope and content
Full length portrait of a Micmac woman standing in a landscape. The artist has paid attention to the costume of the woman. It could be by Lady Falkland, or one of the other female amateur artists in Halifax at the time. The other oil in the album, 1990-207-76, is attributed to Falkland. The two have similar techniques and support. Falkland was in Halifax with her husband, who was governor of Nova Scotia from 1840-46.
Micmac indians were popular subjects with Lady Falkland, there are several in the album. Two by McKie are inscribed with the note "bought by Lady Falkand." Other than these notes, and references to travelling with the Haliburtons and Ellen Nutting, Falkland's relationship with local amateur artists is not documented.
