    That was the only google result I found too.

    Thought the brains trust would easily identify location.

    Info on artist a long shot....

    To me it looks like the top of Fanny's at Buller looking towards Eildon etc.

    Beyond any doubt, that is the West Ridge of Buller on the left. I've climbed up it in winter many times.

    Nice painting, but sorry can't help with anything on the artist.

    I was more curious if the painting itself could be reproduced, and how well the two would compare

    Thanks all, yes that’s where I thought too, but I’m not a Buller regular and wasn’t sure (felt a bit silly asking actually).

    Didn’t think of google earth!!
