    White Mountain painting by Ernest Brown

    Does anyone recognize the mountains, and particularly the prominent ledge, in this painting? It was done in 1976 by Ernest O. Brown (1944-2019) of Conway. I believe he painted mainly in the North Conway-Jackson area. The ledge is very distinctive but I haven't been able to identify it. Any thoughts will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Looks like Chocorua at left, with Three Sister in the background. This could represent Nickerson Ledge or some of the ledges on the Piper Trail, with Carter Ledge peeking in just above it.

    Did he only paint real life landscapes or did he make his own interpretations? If the latter, then it might be loosely based on a real-life landscape but not be a precise rendering.

    Thanks evilhanz. That makes sense. I hadn't thought of that, and I just went up Carter Ledge last week! The artist usually did real landscapes but I think he sometimes interpreted them loosely.
