About the Artist

Lawren S. Harris (Canadian, 1885–1970) was a pivotal figure in the development of landscape painting in Canada, and a founding member of the Group of Seven. He was also a leading abstractionist who believed that colour and form were capable of expressing spiritual truths. The Lake Superior landscape was admirably suited to Harris’s purpose; although foreboding physically, it was, by virtue of its isolation, a "pure" and "spiritual" place.
