Description

Finely engraved portrait of Jacques Cartier, signed by the artist, P. Landon.

The portrait includes a map of a portion of Canada, focused on the St. Lawrence Gulf and River, with Cartier looking in the direction of Canada and using a compass to plot a course on the globe in front of him.

While this portrait seems to have been used extensively as a stock illustration, most examples cut off the maker's name at the top right and we were not able to find another example of the portrait on the market, signed or unsigned. We have not been able to identify the engraver.
