A founding member of the Group of Seven, Lawren Harris is best known for his majestic and modern painted landscapes of Canada’s north that seem to have sprung, fully formed, from the artist’s mind. But behind every painting was a sketch — or in some cases, hundreds of sketches. To celebrate the opening of The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren HarrisCynthia Burlingham, Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Hammer Museum, joins us for an intimate and rare look at the drawings of Lawren Harris. While her talk is currently sold out, you can watch the action live at 6pm on Friday, June 24 below, (or rewatch anytime!).
