Scope and content

Please note that there are no known authenticated portraits of Jacques Cartier.
This portrait by Hamel is copied from a painting done in 1839 by Francois Riss for the town of St. Malo in France. Riss apparently based his portrait on an old sketch in the Bibliotheque nationale (Paris). Just what this sketch was is not known. See the portrait file for Jacques Cartier for further information.
