New Delhi: Art buffs will have the rare treat this weekend as quite a few of the Group of Seven paintings will be on display in Vancouver before they go up for auction.
Among the 144 works on display until Wednesday when they go up for sale at Heffel Fine Art Auction House, is a trio of paintings by Lawren Harris, including “Laurentian Landscape,” which are considered historically important as a foundation work for the Group of Seven.
The paintings will be on display from Saturday to Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Heffel Gallery.
The auction house estimates the painting will fetch between $1.2 million and $1.6 million at Wednesday’s auction.
