Description: JAMES WILSON MORRICE, R.C.A.CUSHING'S ISLAND, MAINE, watercolour; signed and inscribed "Yours truly, J.W. Morrice, Montreal" 5 ins x 3.25 ins; 12.5 cms x 8.1 cms Provenance: Drawn by the artist in the autograph book of Doreen Grant, Ontario.Private Collection, Ontario.Literature: Irene Szylinger, "A Brief Analysis of the Watercolours", "James Wilson Morrice, 1865-1924", Nicole Cloutier (ed), Montreal, 1985, pages, 79-80 and 88.Irene Szylinger, "The Watercolours of James Wilson Morrice (1865-1924)", University of Toronto, Toronto, 1983, pages 18-19 (conversation with the former owner of this artwork, September, 1981).Note: Szylinger (1985) notes that "[o]f the thirteen watercolours done in North America [by Morrice], six represent views of the Maine coastline...along with a page from an autograph book..." Painted in 1882, this work is believed to be the first known watercolour by the artist. Aged 16 or 17 at the time (Morrice was born in August), the painter depicts Cushing's Island in Maine, where the Morrice family spent many summers. The large white building visible higher up on the hill is the Ottawa House Hotel. The hotel would be replaced by a larger building in 1888. In her thesis, "The Watercolours of James Wilson Morrice 1865-1924", Irene Szylinger mentions that "Miss Grant has stated to the present owner of the watercolour that the drawings reflect scenes from the general area where the Grants and Morrices vacationed in Maine. It is Miss Grant's recollection that their families vacationed together and that Morrice was seventeen years old when he dedicated these drawings to her."We would like to thank Morrice scholar, Lucie Dorais, for assistance in researching and cataloguing this artwork.

Scott & Sons, Montreal.Sir William Van Horne (purchased from the artist through W. Scott & Sons, Montreal, in 1891). By descent to the present owner, Ontario.Exhibited: Memorial Exhibition of Paintings by James W. Morrice, R.C.A., Art Association of Montreal, 16 January - 15 February, 1925, no.105 Exhibition : A Selection from the Collection of Paintings of the Late Sir William Van Horne, K.C.M.G., 1943-1915, Art Association of Montreal, Montreal, 16 October - 5 November, 1933, no.171.Literature: Robert J. Wickenden, "Catalogue of Paintings in Oil and Water-colours, Drawings, Etchings, Etc., in the Collection of the Late Sir William Cornelius Van Horne, K.C.M.G. at 513 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal - Alphabetical with Addenda", 1927 (manuscript).Van Horne Family Fonds, Series 13: Wickenden catalogues, Box 35, S.64.11/01/07: No. "V.H. 350 / Landscape", with note "Purchased from the artist" (Art Gallery of Ontario, E.P. Taylor Research Library and Archives).Donald W. Buchanan, "James Wilson Morrice: A Biography", Toronto, 1936, pages 7-8.Note: In his seminal Morrice biography, Buchanan narrates how Sir William Van Horne, President of the CPR, purchased a "sketch" from Montreal dealers Scott & Sons; impressed, he "was soon telling David Morrice that his son would never be happy in the law. Let him go to Paris, was the advice..."; stuff for legend, until now. If a 1887 watercolour with the same provenance is a more probable "sketch", could the present painting have been a commission? Its large dimensions, absolutely unique in Morrice's early corpus, could indicate that; or an exhibition painting... but the price tag besides Morrice's entry in the 1891 AAM Spring Salon, "Afternoon" (oil), and the summertime depicted in "Landscape" makes it unlikely. As Morrice's first major oil, purchased, perhaps even commissioned, by celebrated collector Van Horne, this painting is extremely important for the history of Canadian art, especially for the Montreal art milieu.The subject, treated as pure landscape, is typical of the artist's early work in Europe; but is it French or English? Although Morrice sailed to Liverpool just before Christmas 1899, and was living in London in April 1891, he had already spent some time in France, and the tall poplars over low hills evoke region north-west of Paris. If the technique is a bit crude, let's not forget that Morrice, who was just starting his career, had never painted anything that big. But the future artist is already there, as Wickenden saw in 1927: "A dreamy mystery pervades the canvas, the realistic details being suppressed in favour of an agreeable general effect." ("Catalogue") And flowers similar to the lower left poppies will dot the foregrounds of "Promenade, Dieppe and Morocco Buildings" (ca. 1910 and 1920 respectively, both paintings in the Thomson Collection at the AGO). We would like to Lucie Dorais, who is preparing the Catalogue Raissone of Morrice's work, for contributing the foregoing cataloguing details and essay.

Description: JAMES WILSON MORRICE (1865-1924) STUDY FOR PARAME, LA PLAGE signed; signed on the reverse and inscribed "'10" oil on panel 12 by 15.2 cm. 4.75 by 6 in. This important panel probably dates to 1902 when Morrice was known to have re-visited St. Malo near Parame following a sojourn to Venice. A large canvas of this subject, now in the collection of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, was exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1903 and the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Paris in 1904. Of the larger work Cloutier comments, "This oil, with its limpid colours and purplish-blue strip of horizon is one of Morrice's earliest works in this style, and thus holds a most important place in the artist's oeuvre as a whole." PROVENANCE: Collection of Newton McTavish, Toronto, acquired directly from the artist By descent through the family to Private Collection, Ontario LITERATURE: G. Blair Laing, Morrice, A Great Canadian Artist Re- Discovered, Toronto, 1984, p. 176 Nicole Cloutier, James Wilson Morrice, 1865-1924, Montreal, 1985, larger canvas illustrated on page 149

Description: Robert Wakeham Pilot 1898 - 1967 Canadian oil on canvas Ferry Cab Stand in Winter, Quebec A07S-E04587-001 16 x 20 inches 40.6 x 50.8 centimeters signed Literature:G. Blair Laing, Morrice: A Great Canadian Artist Rediscovered, 1984, for James Wilson Morrice's The Ferry, Quebec (sketch) reproduced front cover Nicole Cloutire, James Wilson Morrice 1865 ~ 1924, The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 1986, for the Morrice canvas The Ferry, Quebec reproduced page 172, catalogue #57 Paul Duval, Canadian Impressionism, 1990, page 138 Provenance:Acquired directly from the Artist in December 1950 By descent to the present Private Collection, Ontario This magnificent painting represents quintessential subject matter for the Canadian Impressionist, with the cab and passengers waiting for the ferry between Levis and Quebec, painted in soft impressionist colour and light.ÿ The scene is set in what appears to be early evening.ÿ While the French Impressionists are famous for painting light shimmering off water, Canadian Impressionists are famed for the depiction of snow with the light shimmering on ice and snow.ÿ We see the Chateau Frontenac in the distance in Quebec City, the city lights reflected in the ice and water.ÿ Central to the composition, Pilot captures the steamship ferry crossing the St. Lawrence.ÿ The encroaching ice floes suggest that this will be one of the final passages before the river is completely frozen.ÿ In the foreground is the wharf at Levis with the cab stand and several figures awaiting the ferry's arrival. Pilot first studied under William Brymner in Montreal at the Royal Canadian Academy, and often accompanied his stepfather Maurice Cullen on sketching trips.ÿ He also studied in Paris at the Academie Julian from 1920 to 1922 and visited the artist's colony at Concarneau, where he absorbed the work of the Impressionists, whose style would influence him throughout his career.ÿ Duval writes, 'Pilot was Canada's last significant painter working in the impressionist tradition.ÿ His views of the province of Quebec, and in particular of Quebec City, are engaging examples of atmospheric painting.ÿ No one, not even his stepfather, the Impressionist Maurice Cullen, evoked the character of Quebec City with more affection or persuasion. Pilot's images of that ancient capital'remain his richest legacy.' Canada's most famous impressionist painter is James Wilson Morrice, an artist who achieved international acclaim in his lifetime.ÿ One cannot help but reflect that Pilot must have been familiar with Morrice's masterpiece The Ferry, Quebec in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.ÿ The similarity between the two artists' depictions lies mostly in the subject matter.ÿ Pilot's depiction is more representational but equally stunning.ÿ Morrice would have been an influence on Pilot even though he was of the generation of Pilot's stepfather Cullen.ÿ From thirty feet away there would be no mistake that this version is by Robert Pilot and as such Pilot's success as an artist is that he has taken the subject matter and made it his own. Accompanying this lot is a copy of a letter from the artist dated December 19, 1950. In the letter Pilot modestly writes of this superb painting: 'It might appear to be as I have taken so long to write, that I was un~appreciative of your great kindness and courtesy to me during the opening of my exhibition in Toronto last November. I would wish to assure you that the contrary is true and that my very best thanks are yours. I am sending you by express today a view of Quebec from Levis which I hope you will like. I showed it to one mutual friend Charles Greenshield and he assured me that this would be so. With thanks and all my very best wishes to you for a happy Xmas and a prosperous new year. Sincerely yours, Robert Pilot.'

Description: JAMES WILSON MORRICE (1865-1924) FARM AND HORSE stamped with "Morrice Studio" stamp, titled on a label and authenticated by Wm. Scott and Sons on a label on the reverse watercolour and gouache on cardboard 33.7 by 54.6 cm. 13.25by 21.5 in. Morrice's watercolours are very few in number, some seventy in all so far are known, but they are nonetheless an important part of his oeuvre. Only about fifteen are believed to have been executed during his earlier years ( 1895-1910). The rest were painted in the last fourteen years of his life. During his early years in Canada, Morrice painted watercolours of the countryside around Toronto and, later, the coast of Maine, where he holidayed with his family. Farm and Horse is the largest watercolour of those recorded. It was probably painted in Brittany around 1918-19, soon after Morrice had served as a War Artist in the Canadian War Memorials program. The sombre colours are turned to dramatic effect by the daring of the composition, which leaves characteristicaly large areas with little detail in shape or texture and thus focuses the eye on the strong forms and vivid colours of the farmer and his horse. PROVENANCE: The Honourable Brooke Claxton, Ottawa, a Minister in the Liberal government of Mackenzie King and Louis St. Laurent in the 1940's, and first chairman of the Canada Council EXHIBITED: Private Collections, National Gallery, Ottawa, 1959, under the title White Horse, no catalogue published LITERATURE: Nicole Cloutier, James Wilson Morrice, 1865-1924, Montreal, 1985. See chapter by Irene Szylinger, A Brief Analysis of the Watercolours, p. 79, for information on Morrice watercolours
