Where is your favorite place to sketch? With just a few brushstrokes, James Wilson Morrice captures the radiant glow of a summer day and transports us to the seaside in Dinard, Towards Saint-Malou. Born in Montreal, Morrice left for Paris in 1890 and immersed himself in the late Impressionist, and then Fauvist, artistic circles of the city. Recognized as one of Canada’s earliest Modernists, Morrice came to fame by producing works just like this: vibrantly painted sketches and paintings that captured daily life and landscapes he experienced during his many travels.
