Product Description
Lawren S. Harris Boxed Notecards
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 color and form were capable of expressing spiritual truths. Beginning in 1918, Harris sponsored sketching trips for himself and his colleagues to the Algoma region of Ontario and, later, to the northern shores of Lake Superior.

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. In representing it, Harris began to simplify his palette and forms to create images that have an iconic quality. First Snow, North Shore of Lake Superior, 1923, is one of the finest of these works.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
Mount Thule, Bylot Island, 1930
First Snow, North Shore of Lake Superior, 1923
Near Mitchell Lake, Batchawana, Algoma, c. 1918
Tamarack Swamp, Algoma, 1920
