Lyttelton from the Bridle Path - Sydney Lough Thompson was living in Christchurch in 1936 when he was commissioned to paint the Port of Lyttelton. The work captures both the beauty of the harbour and the activity of the port's prosperous shipping trade. Thompson has modified the 1930s hard-edged style with elements of Impressionism. On the hills across the harbour are the traditional ochre and blues, which by this time had come to be accepted as Canterbury landscape colours.
