Olevano - Description

From painter Albert Bierstadt’s collection of mountainous Italian paintings comes Olevano, a work of oil depicting this small town in the province of Pavia This landscape painting, a smaller work measuring roughly twenty-six by twenty inches differs slightly from most works by Bierstadt in that it depicts human achievement and construction in the buildings of the middle ground of this painting. Most Romantic art shuns human industry and progress, instead focusing on the majestic qualities and power of natural landscape. This painting, relying on a light source from the bright day time sun, still pays homage to this notion by displaying the mountains in the background dwarfing the village and thereby creating a sense of supreme dominance over the tiny buildings of men. Much attention is paid to the brush and trees in the foreground, giving a sense of fertility and growth to the region independent of the town. Nature takes its own path in this Bierstadt painting and even though it was completed on a different continent it still adheres to Bierstadt’s principles and philosophy. What appears out of place here are the rooftops and walls, as if even the most beautiful building can not match the beauty of even the lowliest flower or blade of grass. This painting, a true beauty of original work, offers a pristine view of an Italian landscape and provides a testimony to the mastery displayed by the painter Albert Bierstadt.
