Radisson and Groseilliers

From Canoes: A Natural History in North America by Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims


  • The American artist Frederic Remington captured the explorers Pierre-Esprit Radisson and Médard Chouart, sieur de Groseilliers, in this painting, a rather unusual portrayal of a bark canoe in calm, shallow waters. Radisson and Groseilliers were brothers-in-law who established the trading routes in the seventeenth century that were later used by the Hudson’s Bay Company.
