It’s auction season in TORONTO, and Canadians have an opportunity to buy some really ‘important Canadian art’.  Both Waddington’s and Heffel Brothers are selling off works by Jean Paul Riopelle, Emily Carr & Jean Paul Lemieux (Heffel Brothers); and Lawren Harris (Waddington’s).  A star canvas by Lawren Harris – “Lake Superior Painting X” – was expected to bring over $3.5-million, an artist record.  However, it sold for $2.47-million.
