The Boston Globe's Sebastian Smee reviews "The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris," guest curated by Steve Martin, which opens Saturday.
- "On Saturday, the Museum of Fine Arts will open an exhibition of paintings by Lawren Harris (1885-1970) carefully selected by Martin. A Canadian painter of austere, unpopulated but vibrant, light-filled northern landscapes, Harris is widely considered to be Canada’s greatest 20th-century modern painter. He is a founding member of the legendary Group of Seven landscape artists, but until now, in the United States he might as well never have existed."
