Artist of the Day- Lawren Harris (click on image to view more)

Lawren Harris was a Canadian painter. His name came up in an article about Steve Martin who admires Harris’ work. He was a member of the Group of 7, a loose group of Canadian painters intent on moving their work towards abstraction. What drew me to this work was how much it reminded me of Rockwell Kent’s work. Kent spent some years painting in Canada. I wonder who influenced who?
