Artist Bio:

Sydney Mortimer Laurence (1865–1940) was an American painter celebrated for his depictions of Alaska's wilderness. He visited Alaska in 1903 and was captivated by its landscapes, later becoming known for his evocative portrayals of its mountains, glaciers, and forests. Laurence's art gained international acclaim, establishing him as a leading artist of the American West. Despite his death in 1940, his legacy lives on through his timeless works, which continue to inspire appreciation for Alaska's natural beauty.

Condition: Piece is overall in very good condition. There is a pin size hole in the right center of painting only visible under radiating light. Around this hole is a 1mm wide circle of paint loss. Canvas is also slightly loose on the stretcher but does not affect image.
