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).

Albert Bierstadt (18301902) was a German-American painter best known for his large landscapes of the American West. In obtaining the subject matter for these works, Bierstadt joined several journeys of the Westward Expansion. Though not the first artist to record these sites, Bierstadt was the foremost painter of these scenes for the remainder of the 19th century.

his work was criticized by contemporaries for being too large, with excessive light (actually known as “luminism”), dramatic colours & an exagerrated shift from foreground to background.
