Edmund Morris, frontier artist
This illustrated biography is the first full-length study of a pioneering Canadian artist and his brief but eventful life (1871-1913). He was best known for many penetrating and scrupulously accurate portraits of western and northern Canadian Indians. Edmund Montague Morris undertook to record the customs and physical appearance of the last native tribes to ride the great plains. In the summer of 1906, he accompanied the official Treaty Expedition nine to the James Bay Indians to paint the Ojibway of Northern Ontario.
