Title: "From Mount Egmont towards Ruapehu"

Art Size: 300w x 170h

Aris is well recognized for his portrayals of Mount Taranaki, or Egmont, as he most often referred to it. What makes this work particularly special, is the date - it is signed 1923. Aris immigrated to New Zealand in 1922. This puts the piece amongst the first of the works he painted with the subject he had a love affair with, and became celebrated for.

"Having first seen Taranaki in 1919 from the deck of a ship, the mountain had captured Aris's imagination in such a way that he never forgot it. In 1923, he came back to paint it."

There is some foxing or a stain/spill on the work in the top left, as pictured. Aside from this, and general fading, it is in very tidy condition.

This painting of Ruapehu from Taranaki is a fantastic piece of New Zealand history, and indeed Aris's personal story - which you may read more about here:
