George Heriot was one of the most important landscape artists in Canada in the 19th century. The civil servant, artist and author came to Canada in 1799 and served for a time as deputy postmaster general. But his greatest contribution to Canada was as a landscape artist. His drawings and watercolours provide many details on life in Canada during that era. This silhouette of Heriot was found in the back of a sketchbook containing 115 of his Canadian and British landscape drawings.
