Lawren S. Harris

Toronto Street, Winter Morning

1920
Harris was keenly interested in the changing urban landscape of Toronto as the city grew throughout the 1920s. His use of linear perspective and open space creates a sense of depth that draws the viewer’s eye to the houses down the street. The artist uses complementary colours and bright light to convey warmth and tranquility despite the snow-covered ground and bare trees.
