Sydney Laurence

Sydney Mortimer Laurence (1865 - 1940)

Laurence painted a variety of Alaskan scenes in his long and prolific career, among them sailing ships and steamships in Alaskan waters, totem poles in Southeast Alaska, dramatic headlands and the quiet coves and streams of Cook Inlet, cabins and caches under the northern lights, and Native Alaskans, miners, and trappers engaged in their often solitary lives in the northern wilderness. But the image of Mt. McKinley from the hills above the rapids of the Tokositna River became his trademark. It is this image more than any other, which personifies Laurence for his many admirers and collectors in Alaska and beyond.
