About Cornelius Krieghoff

Originally trained in Holland and Germany, Krieghoff came to Canada via the United States in the 1840s. After a few years of itinerant living between Rochester, Toronto and Montréal, he settled in Québec City. It is remarkable that from the very outset of his exposure to his adopted land, he commenced painting subject matter which was not only unique to his own times but has subsequently evolved to define Canadianism in the art of Canada.

Initially, the artist was fascinated by the way of life both of the natives and the early European settlers and produced paintings which depicted day to day life of ordinary people.  Rapidly his paintings caught the attention of art collectors and the demand for his work soon enabled him to earn his living as a full time artist. Gradually, with sustained adaptation to northern light, the artist expanded the scope of his subject matter to include landscape in different seasons of the year. Albeit somewhat repetitive, Krieghoff painted some of the most spectacular views of the Canadian Landscape ever painted in the 19th century. These included the mountains and rivers of Québec in summer and winter. Of particular artistic rendition are his compositions of autumn which celebrate the unique harvest of colour. Indeed, the influence of his understanding of the splendor of colour in the northern light of winter and the autumn foliage influenced a generation of such great artists as Tom Thomson and Suzor-Coté. During the mid 1860s, Krieghoff started to exhibit his work both in Canada as well as in Europe.  

In a career which spanned less than two decades, the artist gifted Canada with a vision in art that has become renowned as the foundation for Canadian Art. A work by Krieghoff is not only a mark of prestige for any art collection, it is also a tribute to the struggles and hardships sustained by the earliest settlers who founded Canada. The sympathy and understanding with which Krieghoff portrayed his subject matter is his own tribute to a way of life and the people he discovered and celebrated.
