My Research


Morrice was the subject of my M.A. Thesis (Université de Montréal, 1980). I still maintain a computer database of all his paintings. This project, started in 1975, now comprises over 1000 paintings and watercolors. The information is made available to collectors, researchers and Museum curators.
