Estes Park - Description

Estes Park, Colorado is a landscape painted by German-American Romanticist Albert Bierstadt. It was created in the year 1876 and measures twenty eight by nineteen inches. This piece, an oil painting on canvas, tells the story of the mostly barren Rocky Mountain landscape that lies near the Big Thompson River in Colorado. This scene is reminiscent of Bierstadt’s painting Rocky Mountain Sheep for its depiction of the mountains from close range. Bierstadt does a marvelous job here of capturing the naked elements and nothing more, gracing the canvas with a cold representation of mountain life. Scraggly trees bereft of leaves juxtapose against grey looming mountains and the feeling that there is not a soul around these parts for miles and miles. Bierstadt traps the viewer in this scene, creating a wall of mountain where the only escape is the blue sky overhead in the distance. This feeling gives the painting the feel of an escape into a far off place. It is meant to capture the imagination and adventurous spirit of Americans, making a mountaineer out of all who might glance at it and place themselves in its wild setting. The eye is free to roam in this painting rather than trapped on a specific part. The focal point and subject are the mountains themselves, sitting huddled together in the vast background of this painting.
