This is a rare etching by Canadian artist Frederick Waistell Jopling. It depicts a native Indian maiden going over the falls in a canoe. The content depicted is exceptional. The detail down to the symbol on the front of the canoe is an indication of the skill in this etching. On the shore there are misty figures of the chief and other tribal members. Are they watching the maiden who could be in peril or like James Lumber did the artist depict spirits who were with the maiden? The etching measures 16 3/4" long by 11 1/2" wide inclusive of frame. Etching is signed and dated 1922 by the artist.A great addition to a collection from this esteemed artist.
