Scope and content
Half-length oil painting showing Nancy Lewis, identified from the sketch 1990-207-95X. There are a few changes: Lewis holds a pipe, her hands are shown, and the colours are different. Falkland was in Nova Scotia during her husband's term as governor, 1840-46. Micmac indians were a popular subject among the female amateur artists represented in this album; Nutting and McKie also painted them.
The connection between these artists is not understood.
This oil is similar in technique and subject matter to the other oil in the album, 1990-207-77X, which is a full length portrait of a Micmac woman. The canvas itself is also similar, probably coming from the same supplier.
