Additional Note

Album containing twenty-one original watercolor drawings of fish, birds, and bats by William Smyth. Smyth, a British watercolorist and topographical artist, executed these drawings while serving as official artist of Captain Frederick William Beechey's expedition to the Pacific and Bering Strait aboard the H.M.S.

William B. McMurtrie drawings and watercolors 185- BANC PIC 1963.002:1200-1299--A-AX?

Additional Note

One hundred watercolor and pencil drawings of the Pacific Coast and views along the Columbia River (Washington and Oregon). Coastal views and topographical features from San Diego, Monterey Bay, San Francisco Bay Area, and British Columbia are predominant. Some views from the east coast (Maine) are also included. The drawings fall into two distinctive groupings: the first executed on lesser quality paper and very sketchy; and the second, more finished (mainly watercolors). These drawings were probably done while McMurtrie was a member of the Northwest Boundary Survey party, although it appears that they were executed for his own enjoyment rather than as official survey documentation.
