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.
