False Portrait of Samuel de Champlain
Ducornet (1806 - 1856)
1854 - lithograph on paper
National Archives of Canada
is a false portrait of Champlain. It is actually based on a
portrait of McMichel Particelli d'Emery engraved by Balthazar
Moncornet in 1654. It has been so often used as a portrait of
Champlain that attempts to correct this mistake may be impossible.
