Chiloé Island, Los Lagos, Chile
In 1895, Winslow Homer produced 25 watercolors while on a fishing expedition in Canada. Indian Camp, Roberval, P.Q. was painted at Lake St. John, about 100 miles north of Quebec and shows Montangnais Indians at Pont Bleue. Using straightforward visual material, Homer produced an unusual and arresting composition.
