Original Paul Lauritz High Sierras Nine Lake Basin Early California Oil Painting
"High Sierras, Nine Lake Basin" painting depicts a rugged, snowy mountain scene in the Sierra Nevada mountains, with large rocks and a lake shore with pine trees in the foreground and jagged rock formations protruding from the snow with beautiful sunlit clouds in the background. The angle of the deep shadows suggests it is late afternoon. Painted with large, bold brushstrokes on a masonite board in an impressionistic style by Norwegian born, well known California artist Paul Lauritz. Signed in the lower right corner, with the name and date of the painting handwritten on the back of the board, "High Sierras, Nine Lake Basin Demonstration Scetch (sic) Made June 1st 1943 at Compton, Cal." Paul Lauritz (1889-1975) was educated in Norway and immigrated to Canada in 1905. He worked his way west as an illustrator, living for a time in Oregon before heading to Alaska in 1912 during the gold rush. Failing as a miner, he moved to Los Angeles, California in 1919, where he became a leading member of the Los Angeles art community, known for his landscape paintings of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, the deserts of California, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico, and coastal scenes of Southern California and Mexico. He taught at the Chouinard & Otis Art Institutes. During World War II, the King of Norway purchased one of his paintings. Painting measures 29.75" wide by 25" high. With wide frame it measures 38" wide by 33.25" high by 1.25" deep.
