Listing DetailsThis is the first time this stunning work has been presented to the market. The providence of this work is that it was gifted by Sutton. This is one of the last works Sutton painted prior to his departure to study in the UK in 1947.
Sutton spent much time over many years in the Arthurs Pass/Bealey area of the Southern Alps. The works he completed while staying there is totally evocative of the unique atmosphere in the hills and mountains and almost theatricalness of the weather. He, along with his contemporary Rita Angus, have been in part credited with developing a new distinctive interpretation of the Canterbury landscape. This is characterised by the clear and hard light and the brooding isolation of the land.
