Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris created some of his most famous and best-loved paintings during his trips to the Rocky Mountains in the 1920s. His work from this period captures the majesty of the mountain landscape and forms a visual record of his explorations by foot, horse, canoe, and train.
Hiker and historian Lisa Christensen traces the steps Harris took on these trips and provides a 'trail guide' approach to the works of art they inspired. She offers insight into Harris' experiences in the mountains and how they translated onto canvas in a newly austere and serene painting style. these works of art are a fascinating window into the artist's unique connection with the imposing landscape of the Rocky Mountains.
