Henry Sandham is an important early Canadian artist. Born in Montreal, he became a well-known painter and illustrator there. While still a teenager, he began working as a photographic retoucher with William Notman, who had founded a successful photography studio. By 1868, Sandham had worked his way up to head of the art department. His observations of Montreal life are astute, and he often depicted the leisure activities of the middle class, such as skating and tobogganing, as we see in this splendid winter scene. Sandham included a horse-drawn sleigh dashing down the street, which adds an air of excitement to the scene.
The National Gallery of Canada has a large collection of his drawings and watercolours - 374 altogether - including an 1885 watercolour entitled Tobogganing, Winter Scene in Montreal. The McCord Museum in Montreal also has Sandham’s photographs, prints and paintings in its collection.
