About

Why is this person notable and influential?

From Wikipedia

Lawren Stewart Harris was a Canadian painter, born in Brantford, Ontario. He is best known as a member of the Group of Seven who asserted a distinct national identity combined with a common heritage stemming from early modernism in Europe in the early twentieth century. A. Y. Jackson has been quoted as saying that Harris provided the stimulus for the Group of Seven. During the 1920s, Harris' works became more abstract and simplified, especially his stark landscapes of the Canadian north and Arctic. In the 1930s, He stopped signing, titling and dating his works so that people would judge his works on their own merit and not by the artist or when they were painted.
