James Cook

This crayon portrait is of James Cook (1800-1880) from the former Waterloo Township. Crayon portraits were popular from the 1860s to the early 1900s, and were an inexpensive alternative to a painted portrait. The process involved enlarging a photograph onto drawing paper using a weak emulsion, which produced a faint image. The artist would then draw over the photograph with charcoal or pastels, copying the photograph while making it look hand drawn. 2015.066.001 Waterloo Region Museum
