"Mountain and Glacier" by Lawren Harris
Meanwhile, back at home, Steve Martin’s ploy to bid up the value of Lawren Harris’ paintings seems to have worked. At a Heffel art auction in Toronto last week this painting sold for $4,600,000, at least double the estimate. I like the painting but that seems like a lot of money to me. Obviously there are forces at work here greater than “that would look good on my wall”. The Harris train has left the station but don’t despair, I will put you on the next one. I hear the whistle blowing.
