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. 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.
