Frances Anne Hopkins

Frances Anne (Beechey) Hopkins was born in England and was the granddaughter of the noted portraitist Sir William Beechey.

In 1858 she married Edward Martin Hopkins, Secretary to Sir George Simpson, Superintendent General of the Hudson’s Bay
Company. For approximately a decade she traveled the age-old canoe routes of Canada, accompanying her husband and the
Superintendent on their inspection tours of the Company’s outposts. Although she had little formal art training, Hopkins
employed her natural talent in sketching and painting scenes of the North American waters, forests, and the voyageurs
who traversed them. Hopkins sense of observation gives her paintings a rare accuracy in every detail.

In 1870 Hopkins and her family returned to England where she died in 1919.
