oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left "G.T.Brown 1882", painted from sketches in oil made on the spot by Grafton Tyler, while he served as expedition artist for the Amos Bowman Geological Survey in British Columbia. Number 15 from the 1883 exhibition "Thunder storm on Shuswap Lake, B.C., Sunlight breaking through on the afternoon of September 28, 1882" Grafton Tyler Brown served as expedition artist for the Amos Bowman Geological Survey in British Columbia. The purpose of this survey was to map and record the wilderness east of the Cascade Mountains along the Fraser River. Brown completed a series of 22 paintings in 1883 based on sketches from this trip, which were then exhibited in June of that year in Victoria, BC at the new Colonist Buildings. This painting is most likely number 15 in the exhibition and depicts a thunder storm on Shuswap Lake, B.C., "Sunlight breaking through on the afternoon of September 28, 1882". G.T. Brown is considered the first African American artist to have created works depicting California and the Pacific Northwest.
