Here we fnd Percy Saltzman interiewing 75 year old Lawren Harris. He discusses his own background as an artist, and as a member of the Group of Seven. Saltzman asks Harris if the thought of dying scares him. Harris touches lightly on Theosophy.
The group was not an organized group, and there was no head of the group or collaboration on their art.
Percy Saltzman challenges him on his stylistic move into abstraction, by saying that abstract art "doesn't relate to people and their experiences." Harris, gives a thoughtful, examination of himself as an abstractionist. Saltzman persists and says, that someone called abstraction a nightmare of geometry.
"99% of present day painting is going down the drain, says Harris..........but this is no different then any other age."
