Cynthia Brightmore won several awards with this painting of Mitre Peak, Fiordland National Park New Zealand in 1940.

Oil on canvas placed over board, framed and ready to hang. Measures 38 cm high and 51 cm long. Marked at the bottom right corner: Brightmore 1940.

Cynthia Mary Brightmore, born in 1916, attended Canterbury Art School under the tuition of Mr Cook and is believed to be a contemporary of Rita Angus at this time. As an artist, she was highly versatile covering a wide range of subject matter and her style had a wild flowing quality.

Miss Brightmore painted in addition to her full working life. She joined the Firm of J. L. Hays as a Commercial Artist, during which time she painted a portrait of Mr. James Hay. This was gifted to his son, the Mayor, Sir Hamish Hay. Her work included fashion illustration, window dressing and shop display. This work led to her becoming an interior designer in her own right.

Member of the Christchurch Art Gallery 1946 – 1980.
One solo exhibition during the 1950's in Sydney Australia.
Submitted consistently to Auckland Society of Arts and Canterbury Society of Arts exhibitions.

Miss Brightmore never married and painted prolifically, up until her death on 25 May 1984 at the age of 69 years.
