Historical Context:
Lawren Stewart Harris was a leading landscape painter and an inspirer of other artists. He was a key figure in the Group of Seven and gave new vision to representations of the northern Canadian landscape. Harris spent three years studying in Germany (1904-07), where he became interested in theosophy, a mystical branch of religious philosophy that would inform his later painting. He devoted his entire life to his art.
