Kane Paul 1810-1871 Born In Toronto Received His First Training

under Drury, the drawing-master at Upper Canada College. Spent the years

1836-1840 in the United States; and then sailed for Europe, where he

studied art in Italy and throughout the continent. Returned to Toronto

in 1845, and shortly after set out on a tour of the western territories

of the Hudson's Bay Company. Visited many of the tribes, from Lake

Superior to the Pacific, and brought back with him in 1848 several

hundred sketches, from which he painted a series of oil pictures of

Indian life and western scenery. Some years after, published a narrative

of this journey, illustrated from his own sketches. =Bib.=: Wanderings
