Three Preconfederation Painters of the Canadian City. Part II: James Duncan
Abstract
James Duncan (1806-1881), an Irish-born Scots Presbyterian, emigrated to Montreal in 1825. Aside from being a commercial painter, he worked as a topographer, draughtsman, lithographer, engraver, photographer and ambrotypist. He also instructed drawing and art at several Montreal schools and as a private tutor. In 1847 Duncan became a founding member and treasurer of the Montreal Society of Artists, and was elected a member of the Society of Canadian Artists at Montreal in 1867 and an associate of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1880.
