Lawren Harris Interview 1961 | CBC Archives

Lawren Harris plans to keep painting until he can’t do it anymore. At age 75, he doesn’t know how much longer that will be. His output has changed considerably since the heyday of the Group of Seven, when he was painting Lake Superior and Canada’s Arctic. Now his work is entirely abstract, and interviewer Percy Saltzman challenges him on it, saying abstract art “doesn’t relate to people and their experiences.”
