Scope and content

Head and shoulders portrait of a man. Micmac indians were popular subjects with Lady Falkland. She collected works by both McKie and Nutting, and executed several herself. She was in Halifax when her husband was governor of Nova Scotia from 1840 to '46. Her connection to local amateur artists is not documented outside of this album.
Lady Falkland's notation that she "bought" it suggests a commercial relationship. This inscription is also present on 1990-207-31X.
McKie is known as an amateur artist in Halifax. She exhibited four works in the Halifax Mechanics Institiute exhibit at Dalhousie College in September, 1849.
