The Crossing shares affinities with one of Morrice’s masterworks, The Ferry, Quebec, in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada. Though undoubtedly not a Canadian subject, The Crossing evokes a strong sense of nostalgia for the ex-patriot’s homeland. Morrice had left Canada in 1889 and while he would visit Canada periodically, he was never again to reside in this country.
Canadian Fine Art
Waddington’s has been a major force in the Canadian art market for over five decades, beginning with our first auction of Canadian Fine Art held at the Queen Elizabeth Building at the CNE in 1967. Since then we have offered countless important and major Canadian works of art, set record prices and are regarded as the source for buying and selling exceptional Canadian Art.
