Lawren Stewart Harris(October 23, 1885 – January 29, 1970) was a Canadian painter, born in Brantford, Ontario. He is best known as a member of the Group of Seven who asserted a Definite national identity combined taking into consideration a common pedigree stemming from in advance modernism in Europe in the yet to be twentieth century. A. Y. Jackson has been quoted as maxim 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 as a result that people would consider his works on their own merit and not by the player or when they were painted.
