Executed on heavy watercolor paper, this is a beautiful work by a trained hand, 18" by 26 1/2", unframed, and unsigned. At lower left is written "Valley Ten P/1912", and to the right of and below that "After a fire". On the reverse in pencil is "Valley of Ten Peaks" and "MORAINE LAKE". The painting has foxing in the sky and the reverse is also foxed, but the colors are not faded. There are tack holes in each of the lower corners, and two sharp but short creases, each near the edges, as shown in photos. Unfortunately the work is unsigned. I thought it might be by the noted English watercolors Frederick Marlett Bell-Smith, who painted in western Canada, but I suppose this could be a number of minor artists as well. It appears we will never know who created this, but it is a fine work and worthy of mat and framing so as to be preserved for another century at least. See other Canadian art in my shop.
