Stimulated by fin de siècle longings for the exotic, several adventurous artists sought inspiration in North Africa or in the Caribbean. In the case of J.W. Morrice, his nostalgia for sensual simplicity and elite tourist curiosity were amplified by the modernist quest for light and purity of colour. This gallery talk offers visitors an opportunity to hear from McMichael Chief Curator, Katerina Atanassova.
