Catch The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris

Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 28 July 2016
If you’ve dropped by the AGO, you’ve likely seen a Lawren Harris painting (or ten) at some point or another. As one of Canada’s famed Group of Seven painters, Harris has long long been celebrated in the Great White North. But a new exhibition, The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris curated by actor-comedian-jack-of-all-trades, Steve Martin, puts Harris in a new light – and has garnered attention south of the border.

The Idea of North first opened in LA’s Hammer Museum, and then introduced Harris’s iconic landscapes to Boston audiences. This July, the exhibition came home to Toronto. See some of Harris’s most influential paintings, from his time in Toronto, to his ventures in Canada’s north.
