Watercolour on paperSubject and Association Keywords
Lincoln Lee (1932) wrote "Two more finished works of that date  are Moving Mists and Mountain Heights." John Sidney Gully (1984) acknowledges this and states that be believes the subject to be Mount Alarm but could not positively identity either date or locality. "Moving mists" might be "Morning Mist" (accession number 142).
Tramper and climber, David Blunt, believes that this image is not the right shape for Mount Alarm and is more likely to be Mount Tapuae-o-Uenuku as seen from the Awatere Valley.
