James Wilson Morrice: Painter Of Light And Shadow
Wayne Larsen

Dundurn Press

Wayne Larsen’s YA biography of a Canadian painter, James Wilson Morrice: Painter of Light and Shadow (Dundurn Press) is well researched and fun to read. Readers can immerse themselves in the life of this Montreal-born and far-travelling painter who developed his own painting style and enjoyed friendships with artists and writers from all over the world. Larsen infuses Morrice’s biography with colour and context, from snowy Montreal winters to crowded Parisian cafés. He presents a compelling and laudable portrait of a painter and his exciting milieu. mRb
