|Albert Bierstadt Painting|
Albert Bierstadt was born in Germany in 1830 and grew up in America. He was a prolific artist who painted the West but who also joined a group of artists in New York, known as the Hudson River School. These artists traveled up and down the Hudson River and painted breathtaking scenes with a luminous glow. Bierstadt is often categorized as a Luminist Painter.
Of all his paintings, “Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains” is one of my favorites. It measures 72”x120”. This is an enormous work of art!
Albert Bierstadt was a master artist. After studying his work, I would venture to that he was a student of “seeing” and of life itself. He was dedicated, passionate, and he saw his work through to completion. I would say that long ago, the student became the teacher.
