Celebrate the 130th Birthday of Lawren Harris in Brantford

One of Canada’s most prolific painters, Lawren Harris, was born right here in Brantford on October 23, 1885. Harris is best known as a member of the Group of Seven, a collective of artists who pioneered a style of Canadian landscape painting that became popular in the early twentieth century. The works that he is probably best known for are his simplified abstracted representations of Canada’s Arctic landscape.
