Born in France, Edward Jump (1832-1883) emigrated to San Francisco in 1852, hoping to strike it rich in the Gold Rush. A multi-talented artist, he made his living drawing commercial signs, painting portraits and creating political cartoons for a variety of American publications. After leaving California, around 1865, he worked first in Washington D.C, then in New York, New Orleans, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Chicago. From 1871 to 1873, he worked in Canada, drawing cartoons for two Montreal-based publications, L'Opinion publique and Canadian Illustrated News.
