California Spring

by Albert Bierstadt

Love it or Your Money Back

California Spring - Description

California Spring is a testament to the sublime so celebrated in Romantic artwork. Painted by Gernan-American Romantic Albert Bierstadt in the year 1875, this oil on canvas measures a gargantuan seven by four feet. This painting embodies all qualities of the Romantic period with its marvelous display of awe inspiring color and emotion. Sunlight bursts through parting clouds in this painting, filling the fertile valley with radiant beams of sunlight. In the foreground, docile creatures graze and gaze upon the sun streaked valley beneath the shade of trees. In the middle ground, all the ferocity of a winding river flows onward into the background leaving the viewer of this scene with a sense of flowing life and vitality. As with most Bierstadt paintings, the observer stands independently at a distance away from the subjects, interacting only with the images stretched infinitely before. What is most striking in this scene is clearly the sky whose brilliant shades of white billowy clouds rise and break before us exposing beneath its blanket a great expanse of blue. The painting is designed with the ever present Romantic notion that nature exists apart and without the hand of humans, whose hands are nowhere to be seen in this magnificent work. It is a display of sheer nature in all of its glory and leaves no room or place for the image of man.
