Likely the most famous and financially successful late 19th century painter of the American western landscape, Albert Bierstadt created grandiose, dramatic scenes of the Rocky Mountains and Sierra Nevadas that lured many people to visit those sites. He was also one of the first artists to use a camera to record landscape views. Albert Bierstadt was active in New York, California, Kansas, Massachusetts and Germany. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a small but mighty masterpiece by this talented artist. Soon to be added to Albert Bierstadt's catalog raisonne. In the summer of 1856, during a four-year period of study in Europe, Bierstadt joined several American colleagues on a sketching trip. His fascination with the Swiss terrain resulted in a series of oil studies and pencil sketches, executed during the trip, and several paintings of the mountain landscape, painted upon his return to New Bedford, Massachusetts.
