Summary The Ash K. Prakash Collection of works by James W. Morrice offers an exciting journey into the personal and artistic explorations of the first Canadian painter who established an enviable career as an artist in Paris by the turn of the twentieth century. While living abroad for the rest of his life, Morrice also played a vital role in advancing modern artistic trends at the turn of the twentieth century in Canada. The in-depth collection of works will feature just over three decades of collecting by Mr. A.K. Prakash, and will weave the intricate story of the artist through the story of the collector and his ability to refine his collection and sustain his passion for the artist and his art.00Exhibition: National Gallery of Canada (13.10.2017 - 18.03.2018) / Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Fredericton, Canada (12.04. - 02.07.2018) / Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada (20.07. - 07.10.2018).
