Jennings, John et al. eds. The Canoe in Canadian Cultures.
Toronto, Natural Heritage Press, 1999. 300 p. Illus.
- p. 17 - “Venerable Canadian canoes are in museums and under cottages, in literature and on beer labels. They turn up in works of art by the Group of Seven, in voyageur paintings of Frances Anne Hopkins, in ubiquitous textbook etchings of C.W. Jefferys and, again, as many of these images are encultured in philatelic art.”
- p. 232 - “In the art of former and contemporary artists, we see a variety of ways of depicting the canoe or rather the spirit of the canoe, all fascinating and informative, but widely different. Witness the works of Krieghoff, Heming, Colville, Carr, Jeffreys [sic], Hopkins, Gagnon, Verner, Kane or contemporaries like Mason, Wilson, Robinson or Broadfoot to discover the variety of canoe depictions.”
