Giant Redwood Trees of California - Description

Giant Redwood Trees of California, completed in the year 1874 by Romantic German-American painter Albert Bierstadt, is one of the finest examples of Romantic art by one of the movement’s most prolific artists. This forest scene embodies the Romantic philosophy that art should act as an escape for people stuck in places where they could not be around nature. An excessive amount of light and inclusion of miniscule people in relation to the massive redwood trees create the impression of being dominated by a force much more powerful than humans. The trees are meant to be terrifying in their size, indicative that they might travel upward forever due to the absence of their tops on the canvas. Not one to usually include humans in his work, they are not depicted here without purpose. The humans are only meant to be held in check by the sheer size of this enormous forest, yet their interactions seem natural and easy. They appear to be as much a part of the landscape as any naturally growing object or animal might. Bierstadt depicts an American landscape meant to intrigue and delight but also terrify his audience. Here lies growth as wild and untamed as the mountains of the Sierra Nevadas, highlighted by the water stream entering the middle ground and continuing through the foreground infinitely. This piece grows in every direction.
