Morrice, Lyman and Matisse on display at McMichael

James Wilson Morrice, RCA (1865-1924) | View Towards Levis from Quebec, 1909 | Oil on canvas 23.3/4 x 31.1/2 in.

Last Thursday my father, Alan, and I attended the lenders evening for the exhibition Morrice and Lyman in the Company of Matisse at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg, Ontario. This formidable exhibition is the latest in a series of significant research-based projects originating from the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) and the final one by award-winning curator Michèle Grandbois, who has since retired.
