Lawren S. Harris Boxed Notecards

$16.95

Published with: the Vancouver Art Gallery

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. 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

Lawren S. Harris

Lawren S. Harris (Canadian, 1885–1970), who firmly believed in the need for a Canadian national art movement, was the impetus behind and cofounder of the Group of Seven. Filled with national pride, he and the Group painted the Canadian landscape with enthusiasm, capturing the majesty of its wilderness. Over the course of his career, Harris’s Impressionism-influenced landscapes evolved to streamlined representation and then to geometric abstraction. The mystical quality of his works reflects his deep interest in theosophy. “Art,” as Harris wrote in 1924, “is the beginning of vision into the realm of eternal life.” Harris ultimately settled in Vancouver, British Columbia, where for 30 years he was an important painter and personage in Canadian arts organizations.
