 It's believed that in his later years, the Canadian Lawren Harris duplicated several of his favourite works. Exactly replicated is not necessarily correct as they often differed somewhat from the originals.

 

Is that what we have here?

Lawren Harris strove to embody the spiritual essence of the universe through simplified, archetypal forms which appear in a mystical light that seems to radiate from the canvas.

One of his most favoured subjects was the mountains of the Arctic north, where he believed the spiritual energies of the world originated. It was these mountains which carried huge symbolic meaning for Him.


“The primal mountains, forged into being by forces beyond human comprehension, were metaphors for the presence and power of a life force that animates the universe.”

 

His mountain paintings were the last representational works he painted before turning to pure abstraction but the mountain form would always be a central preoccupation in his work.
