On the Saco

by Albert Bierstadt

On the Saco - Description

On the Saco takes the viewer into an autumn scene in New England along the banks of the Saco River. German-American Romanticist and landscape painter Albert Bierstadt of the Hudson River and Rocky Mountain Schools painted this scene in oil. It measures forty two by thirty inches. This Romantic painting captures all of the vibrant colors of an autumn spectrum in New England, heightened by the artist’s trademark reflection on the river. Cows laze about drinking water in the shallow bank indicating its slow moving quality. The eye is meant to travel down the wide river and wind up at the base of the dark looming mountains. What appears to be a serene and peaceful scene is held in check by the inclusion of the darkness filling the upper left corner foretelling the coming of a long New England autumn’s eve. This contrasts nicely when compared to the brightness occurring in the well lit upper right corner. In the background looms even an even darker mass of mountains that hang about and cast a sublime feeling to this majestic landscape. As with most Romantic paintings, Bierstadt chooses to leave the human element out of this painting and replace it with subjects of the bovine nature. Its effect is a heightened sense of the power and beauty inherent in nature apart from the role of humans.
