As found on Alaska History:
After his death, Sydney Laurence became internationally famous as “the foremost painter of Alaskan scenes” during the first three decades of the twentieth century. He painted Alaskan landscapes of “romantic and unspoiled Alaska” on such subjects as Mount McKinley (now Denali), rustic cabins and caches, oceans crashing on rocky coasts, and other dramatic scenes. He made his home in Anchorage for twenty-five years from 1915 to 1940. Laurence is best known for his paintings of Mount McKinley in many moods. In Anchorage, examples of his work are on public display at the Anchorage Museum; Wells Fargo Bank’s Alaska Heritage Museum and Library; and at Z.J. Loussac Library, Anchorage Public Library
