From mountains to states of mind, Lawren Harris aimed always to go higher. After his soaring depictions of mountains and icebergs made him famous and became quintessential Canadiana, the iconic landscape painter and member of the Group of Seven turned to abstraction, seeking to find or create “the spiritual in art.” Lawren Harris and his contemporaries were seeking a view into the infinite and the sublime – their artwork was on a cosmic scale. This exhibition also features an important presentation of Harris’ American counterparts, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Arthur Dove, Raymond Jonson, and Marsden Hartley. Over 60 works of art make up this exhibition that shows another side of one of Canada’s greatest artists.
