Three Lawren Har­ris paint­ings high­light Hef­fel auc­tion tonight

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS / ENTERTAINM­ENT -

TORONTO - Three works by Group of Seven painter Lawren Har­ris and what’s be­lieved to be Tom Thom­son’s last paint­ing are go­ing on the auc­tion block tonight. The paint­ings are part of the Hef­fel Fine Art Auc­tion House fall sale, with 156 lots ex­pected to gen­er­ate be­tween $10 mil­lion to $15 mil­lion in sales by night’s end. Har­ris’s “Win­ter Land­scape” is ex­pected to sell for be­tween $1.2 mil­lion to $1.6 mil­lion, “Moun­tain and Glacier” has an es­ti­mated value be­tween $1 mil­lion and $1.5 mil­lion, and “Win­ter in the Ward” could go for be­tween $500,000 to $700,000. While Har­ris paint­ings are al­ways a big draw, there could be in­creased in­ter­est in his work given the buzz around a Steve Martin-cu­rated ex­hibit at the Los An­ge­les Ham­mer Mu­seum. The ex­hibit will also hit Toronto’s Art Gallery of On­tario in 2016.
