A Hiker's Guide to the Rocky Mountain Art of Lawren Harris
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-color 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.
