Fur Traders
The fur trade is a worldwide industry dealing in the acquisition and sale of animal fur. Since the establishment of a world fur market in the early modern period, furs of boreal, polar and cold temperate mammalian animals have been the most valued. Historically the trade stimulated the exploration and colonization of Siberia, northern North America, and the South Shetland and South Sandwich Islands. Today the importance of the fur trade has diminished; it is based on pelts produced at fur farms and regulated fur-bearer trapping, but has become controversial

Frances Anne Hopkins
Frances Anne Hopkins
Frances Anne Hopkins
(2 February 1838 – 5 March 1919) was a British painter. She was the third of Frederick William Beechey's five children.[1] In 1858, she married a Hudson's Bay Company
Hudson's Bay Company
official, Edward Hopkins, whose work took him to North America. Hopkins travelled alongside with him. While sailing, she was able to sketch extensively, therefore, capturing a now lost way of living – the last days of the fur trade.[2] Hopkins was active in the field of painting, during the 1860s and '70s.[3] Her best-known works are several large paintings made from her sketches. She portrayed a voyageur's life in the mid-nineteenth century.[4] Hopkins, however, remained unknown not until recently. At the same time, considering that, she was an artist placed in a context where gender-imposed restrictions were prevalent
