James Wilson Morrice (1865-1924) was one of the earliest Canadian modernist painters and the first Canadian to achieve widespread acceptance abroad. Morrice traveled and painted in Europe, North Africa and the Caribbean but returned annually to Canada and Québec City. Around 1909, he met and painted with Henri Matisse finding inspiration in Fauvist colours and flattened composition. Morrice's paintings are in all major Canadian museum collections including the National Gallery of Canada.
