James Wilson Morrice

Morrice, James Wilson (môrˈĭs) [key], 1865–1924, Canadian painter, b. Montreal. Abandoning law, he went to Paris, where he studied painting. He visited Venice, Trinidad, Tunis, and periodically returned to Canada. Admired for his subtle coloring and delicate rendering of landscapes, Morrice greatly influenced younger Canadian artists. The National Gallery, Ottawa, has several of his paintings, including Venice: Night and Dieppe: the Beach.
