Poetry and Perception / Poésie et Perception: James Wilson Morrice and/etTom Thomson

Organized and circulated by the National Gallery of Canada
Organisée et mise en tournée par le Musée des beaux-arts du Canada

Comprising forty oil sketches by the two artists, (twenty each), this exhibition shows the changing character of the artists' use of paint and reveals their differing visions of nature and of the world. Given that each artist, in his own distinct way, concentrates on the evocation of specific places, this exhibition is also a perfect counterpoint to The Nickle's feature fall exhibition, Sense of Place.
