As the leader of the Group of Seven, Lawren Harris first rose to national prominence while living and painting in Toronto. The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) welcomes his paintings home this summer—following a critically acclaimed trip across the United States—with The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris. The AGO's installation of this exhibition tells a much bigger story about art in Toronto, highlighting Harris's early streetscapes, his iconic northern landscapes and his lasting imprint on Canadian art and identity. It also examines Toronto's historic Ward neighbourhood—captured by Harris in his paintings and by archival photographers—and features reflections on the city's history by several contemporary artists.
