Winner of Canada's Second Most Costly Painting Award
Thursday's CBC news reported that Lawren Harris's, Old Stump of Lake Superior, sold for $3.5 million dollars, making it the second highest selling picture in Canadian history. Interestingly, the picture was a sketch for his painting 'North Shore of Lake Superior.'
Harris's painting St. Patrick's Street Toronto recently sold for $2.8 million, and his 'Winter in the Northern Woods' sold for $1.4 million, in 2004. Prior to that, his painting 'Baffin Island', sold for $2.5 million, in 2001 making it, at that time, the most costly of the Group of Seven paintings.
The big dollar total for Harris's works cashes in at $11.2 million dollars.
