Our second painter this term is Cornelius Krieghoff, who was born in the Netherlands but became one of Canada's most famous 19th-century painters.
Some resources I've found:
The National Gallery of Canada's "preview" page from an exhibition several years ago
Another preview page, which looks at his development as an artist
A page of gift-shop items based on Krieghoff's paintings (I found this amusing)
(Hey, that would be kind of a cool idea for a picture narration, wouldn't it?--Design something else inspired by Krieghoff's work. Besides a T-shirt or a Christmas card.)
Something else fun--which of these two is the real Krieghoff painting, and which is the fake?
A book I want to get from the library: Krieghoff: Images of Canada, by Dennis Reid
And not totally helpful, but a tie-in anyway (and the library has it): a CD of folk music called À la claire fontaine: Music in Krieghoff's Quebec.
