I am so excited that a show of
work by Lawren Harris
is opening at the Museum of Fine Arts
Mountains in the Snow
Harris was a member of the Group of Seven,
a group of artists whose paintings, inspired by the Canadian landscape,
initiated the first major Canadian national art movement
from 1920 - 1933.
and refer to it often,
especially for inspiration when painting landscapes.
The color reproductions are stunning.
"Silcox [is] a wonderfully lucid stylist . . . this definitive volume presents 400 supreme color reproductions . . . covering the entire spectrum of the proficient and prolific group's magnificent output . . . every painting is vibrantly, radiantly, and gloriously alive: a veritable hymn to life."
