The following text is about The Death of General Wolfe painting by Benjamin West. does the bold section mean "for example the clothes of the Canadian native man, the clothes that were probably not popular in that period or that territory"?

The American Benjamin West’s subsequent heroic portrayal of Wolfe’s death is romantic and historically dubious despite its attention to detail, as in the native Canadian dress, for example (Art and War by Laura Brandon).

    No, it means that West's depiction of the native Canadian dress displays attention to detail (which suggests that the depiction is an accurate representation of the native Canadian dress).
