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 ofcollecting 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.

Katerina Atanassova, Ph.D. candidate, is the Senior Curator of Canadian Art at the National Gallery of Canada where she has recently overseen the reinstallation of the Canadian art collection in the new Canadian and Indigenous Galleries. She previously served as Chief Curator and Director of Exhibitions at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and Collection Curator at the Varley Art Gallery of Markham. She has also curated award-winning exhibitions of historical and contempor-ary Canadian art in Canada and abroad. Among many others, her exhibitions William Berczy ? Man of Enlightenment (2004), F.H. Varley: Portraits Into the Light (2006), and Painting Canada: Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven (Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, and other European museums, 2011), received great critical acclaim and public recognition. Drawing upon the experi-ence of presenting Canadian Art on an international stage with ground-breaking exhibitions, Ms Atanassova dares to push new boundaries and encourages new ways of presenting Canadian art in a global context.
