John Gully made two sketching trips to Fiordland, the first in 1874 and the second in 1877. These trips provided Gully with many years worth of material for his paintings but he also often worked from sketches supplied by others.
The slope of the mountains in this painting suggests that it is possibly South of Dusky Sound.
