More About this Item


Description: JOHN FERY (american/austrian 1859-1934) MOUNT TIMPANOGOS, NORTH FACE Signed ''J. Fery'' bottom right, oil on canvas 38 x 25 3/4 in. (96.5 x 65.4cm) provenance: The Collection of Olof Henry Nelson, Utah, c. 1920s. By descent in the family to his wife, Naomi Passey Nelson. By descent in the family to her daughter, Patricia Nelson Checketts. By descent in the family. Private Collection, Utah. note: A well-known and beloved landmark for those who live in Utah, particularly in the areas surrounding Salt Lake City and Provo-Orem, along what is referred to as the "Wasatch Front", Mount Timpanogos is part of the Wasatch Mountain range. The present painting depicts the north face of the mountain, where the famous Timpanogos Cave National Monument is also located. In 1910, Fery was hired by Louis W. Hill and the Great Northern Railway to paint scenes of Glacier National Park in Montana. The paintings were subsequently used as promotional material for tourists to ride the train and stay at the chalets and lodges built by the Railway between 1910 and 1915. Similarly, Fery was commissioned by Southern Pacific Railway to paint Californian scenes such as Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. Eventually settling in Salt Lake City, Fery continued painting landscapes of his environs. The present work was executed by Fery after a month camping near what is known today as American Fork Canyon and its northward branch called Tibble Fork, and shows a view of that area. This painting will be accompanied by a copy of a letter from the Inter Mountain Art Company to the previous owner, Olof Nelson, written in 1932.
