Description

Portrait of Jacques Cartier is from a painting by François Riss who is said to have copied it from another portrait. Some art authorities believe that the portrait is entirely spurious. M. Riss, a Russian painter who moved to Paris, copied a picture reported to be the likeness of Cartier some 300 years after Cartier's first voyage. The historic chateau de Ramezay on Notre-Dame Street East in Montreal owns a similar painting about 48 inches high by 36 inches. A note appearing in the 13th edition of the gallery catalogue states that no genuine portrait of Cartier exists. The nearest is in Ramusio's engraving of his visit to Hochelaga (now Montreal).
