albert bierstadt

hey dorks, it’s art history time. if you’re not familiar with the classic frontier paintings by albert bierstadt – you will be now. you owe it to yourself to stare at these bad boys. that light! that detail! oh wow, i could just imagine a million reproductions hanging in thrift stores & seventies living rooms the world over and not getting a second glance (shame).
