Transcript

  • 1. Albert Bierstadt Paintings of the WestBorn and educated in Germany, Albert Bierstadt traveled to the American West in 1859 in the company of severalother artists. Prior to his departure, he announced on January 17, 1859 in The New Bedford Daily Mercury that hisintentions in traveling west were to “study the scenery of that wild region, and the picturesque facts of Indian life, withreference to a series of large pictures.” Captivated by the West, he ventured there numerous times throughout his lifeand settled in California for two years. Much of Bierstadt’s painting speak to a time lost, when the West and Californiawere uncharted territory and when individuals began to take hold of the beliefs of Manifest Destiny.
