Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris created some of his most famous and best-loved paintings during a trip to the Rocky Mountains in 1924. His work captures the majesty of the mountain landscape and creates a visual record of his explorations by foot, horse, canoe and train.
“A Hiker’s Guide to the Rocky Mountain Art of Lawren Harris” traces the steps Harris took on this monumental trip. It’s “trail guide” approach and beautiful full-colour reproductions encourage readers and visitors to the Rocky Mountains to follow in the artist’s footsteps and explore for themselves the various landscapes that inspired his work.
