Lawren S. Harris

Decorative Landscape

1917
Harris’ title conveys the painting’s intent, the screen of trees creating a Japanese-like flattened design. Harris has selected the tranquil moment when the sun casts a glow over the landscape, the subtly interwoven rays emanating diagonally from behind the central spruce.
