"Eight Sketches by Lawren Harris"

This information was provided courtesy of the Vancouver Art Gallery Library.

The endeavor in six of these sketches was to get the spirit of a part of the country in as simple, concentrated and complete a way as possible and to do this through direct, first hand experience, as a Canadian sees and feels his own land.

A people makes a home for its physical well being by pioneering and cultivating the land.

It achieves a home for its soul in its own country through the creative works of its own artists in all the arts.
