Sydney Laurence- Early signature and earlier work
Robin Fleming (09/01/2011)
Sydney Laurence I am curious about his earlier paintings in Europe- did he depict any bridges or turrets? Was his signature limited to only last name in his earlier years and did it reflect any specific change? to how he wrote`L"?

Cloud Cache
pj (03/14/2008)
I have a painting or reproduction of a painting (can't tell)titled "Cloud Cache". The title is on the left side on the mat and the signature Sydney Laurence on the right side of the mat, both in ink. It is a single mat and there is a line about 1/4 inch from the mat's inside edge surrounding the image. I have scoured the net for this particular image and have not found anything. It is hard to tell if it is an oil sketch or a print. If it is a print, does anyone know if Laurence made prints out of his paintings and, if so, what format? I might have to take it out of it's frame and glass but don't want to. Thanks, PJ

24 x 28 Northern Lights Painting
C, Lilly (03/12/2008)
I found a large painting signed in an old original circa 1920s frame. There is no title. It is of the Northern Lights and a cabin. I was told it was more than likely a commisioned reprint for National Bank Of Alaska. However upon researching, I have never seen the original. If it were commisioned...there would be an original? An art dealer told me that I should have it appraised..and the age of the frame confused her. It is very flat with no obvious brush strokes, but I read he painstakingly hid his brushstrokes. Unsure. Any comments are welcomed. I have a pic of it if anyone would like to see it. Thank you. Lilly

I have s.l. painting-title unknown now
frank moore (06/02/2007)
i was givin this painting by my mother before she passed away. she had lived in anchorage. the painting came with a paper between the the painting and paper backing with the title, author name, etc but I can't find that paper now. It looks to me as the Chucach(sp) mountains n.e. of anchorage with a man tossing wood into a fire.

Sydney Laurence
kay (02/15/2006)
I purchased an old 8x10 print of Laurence's Susitna Trading Post. The print appears to have been retouched by hand. The mat board has the title of Yukon Trading Post and Sydney Laurence Alaska penciled along the lower mat edge. The penciled signature appears to be the same handwriting as Laurence with the distinctive S and L capitals. There is no date on print or mat. Would anyone know whether Laurence signed mats for prints and/or retouched prints? Thanks.

Sydney Laurence
Byron Gibbons (01/12/2006)
I have a an oil on canvas with the painters mark of just "Sydney". It has the characteristics of Sydney Laurences work. Did he ever sign any of his paintings in this way? Thanks

Sydney Laurence oil painting
PK (01/02/2006)
Can anyone tell if the painting I have is an original, reproduction, or print? I have a Sydney Laurence oil painting approx. 23 x 35 signed in lower left "Sydney Laurence" and in the right corner, a copy right symbol with the letter "N". I cannot see what comes after the "N" as it is covered by the frame. The painting is in oil, textured etc. Subject is large ship on stormy sea with mountain in background. I obtained the painting at an Alaskan estate auction. Any help would be much appreciated.

Sydney M Laurence
Sherry Russell (09/29/2004)
I have 2 oil paintings that my great grandfather brought from Sydney M Laurence when he was in St.Ives,Cornwall. He was short of money and my g.grandfather was a manager in a Bank and helped him out. He was with Julius Olsen, both who painted at the Newlyn School. The first painting is of the harbour in St.Ives with a boat on swirling seas, and the second painting is of moor land with a man carrying a gun and his dog, perhaps hunting ( my favorite) Can anyone tell me if these are valuable? They are very large paintings.
