Horatio Walker was born in Listowel, Ontario, in 1858 and died in Sainte-Pétronille, on Île d'Orléans, in 1938. He began his artistic training with the photographers Notman and Fraser in Toronto between 1873 and 1876. He worked as a photographer in Rochester, New York, for a number of years. Towards the mid-1880s, he spent his winters in New York and his summers on Île d'Orléans. His highly idealized depictions of rural life in Quebec, showing hard-working peasants against a brilliant sky, are reminiscent of the French painters of the Barbizon School.
