Blame Canada

About five months ago we mentioned how influential a visiting exhibition in 1938 including the Canadian Group of Seven had been on Rita Angus. Of course Angus wasn’t the only New Zealand artist who visited the show. Imagine our surprise to round the corner in the National Gallery of Canada and see a Leo Bensemann ... whoops ... we mean Lawren S. Harris.
