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.

This magnificent Borduas painting is a fine discovery. Paintings of 1949 are especially rare to come upon. A year after the publication of the manifesto Refus Global, and his suspension from his teaching position at the École du Meuble, 1949 was not an easy year for Borduas. He literally had to live from his painting. For this purpose Le tombeau de la cathédrale défunte was first exhibited in Surrational Painting among nineteen other recent works in an exhibition at the studio of brothers Guy and Jacques Viau (May 14-26).
Congratulations to the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) for the exhibition “Morrice and Lyman in the Company of Matisse”, which opened yesterday.
Having been in the business of Canadian art for four decades and being a hockey fan, with the impending excitement of a Habs vs Bruins playoff series, we are proud to share with you what we believe is the finest hockey painting. (The artist himself puts in a cameo appearance in the lower right.)
The painting shows John Bucyk # 9, left wing, Phil Esposito # 7 centre and Fred Stanfield # 17 a centre man who sometime played wing. (Or is it #12 Wayne Cashman, a natural winger ?)
