Rocky Mountains

by Albert Bierstadt

Rocky Mountains - Description

Rocky Mountains is an oil painting created in 1866 by German-American Romantic painter Albert Bierstadt of the Rocky Mountain and Hudson River Schools. This piece, done in oil, was created around the time of one of the artist’s many trips painting the American West. A Romantic painting, this painting works to display first and foremost the sublime power and inspiring size of one of America’s greatest mountain ranges. Similarly to many Romantic works, there are no humans in this picture. The subjects pictured here are a group of deer at the bank of a body of water. They appear docile and radiant in their innocence, giving this painting a feeling of clean heartedness and primitive beauty without the insertion of humans or anything made by human hands. The oil used in this painting fills the canvas with rich color that would not be fully achievable with any other type of paint and the effect is a view of the snow tipped peaks of the Rockies behind a hazy cloud. Another trademark common to many works by Bierstadt appears in the lower right hand corner where a section of earth juts out and provides a visual “end” to the painting. On the left side, for instance, the water merely keeps going until the border giving the impression that more water will follow. On the right, the dark earth serves as both a cropping tool and the invitation to imagine the rest of the park unfolding behind the viewer, placing them in the heart of this painting.
