New Perspectives

Two painting hang together, both by a member of The Group Of Seven. Lawren Harris painted North Shore, Baffin Island in 1931, and Greenland Mountains in 1930.


Here are two more paintings by Emily Carr, both showing her keen interest in First Nations settings. Graveyard Entrance, Campbell River is a 1912 painting.


Heina dates to 1928.


And today I leave off with Myself, a 1933 self portrait by Paraskeva Clark.

  1. A great champion of the works of the Group of Seven is the American comedian and actor, Steve Martin.

  3. I found the picture of the Greenland mountains particularly interesting as I'm reading a book about that part of the world at the moment.
