Elizabeth Simcoe (1762-1850): une amateure et intellectuelle anglaise dans les Canadas. Son œuvre écrite et dessinée, et le projet colonial by Denis Longchamps( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elizabeth Posthuma Gwillim Simcoe était en voyage officiel dans les Canadas de 1791 à 1796. Elle accompagna son mari, John Graves Simcoe qui prenait le poste de lieutenant-gouverneur de la province du Haut-Canada récemment créé. Tout au long de ce voyage, elle rédigea un journal qu'elle envoyait par section à la famille et aux amis en Angleterre. Le journal était illustré d'esquisses prises in situ dont elle se servait pour peindre des aquarelles. Les études publiées à ce jour sont surtout axées sur les écrits de Madame Simcoe, utilisant sa production artistique comme illustration. Récemment, quelques recherches se sont intéressées à son oeuvre peinte, mais de façon très restreinte, n'examinant qu'un petit nombre d'oeuvres à la fois généralement dans le but de situer son oeuvre dans un discours sur le pittoresque. De plus, les auteurs ont abordé leur sujet d'un point de vue canadien; cependant, Elizabeth Simcoe était anglaise. La présente dissertation analyse l'oeuvre d'Elizabeth Simcoe, un corpus de plus de sept cents aquarelles, cartes, esquisses et dessins, en considérant d'abord et avant tout son patrimoine culturel et politique anglais, lequel a formé son regard. Appuyés par des études qui critiquent les approches coloniales traditionnelles, nous avons pu donner à Madame Simcoe la place qui lui revient, celle d'une amateure et artiste engagée. Tout en appuyant le projet colonial de son mari, Elizabeth Simcoe fit aussi, parfois publiquement, la promotion de l'Empire britannique
