Sierra Nevada

Sierra Nevada - Description

Sierra Nevada stands as a crown gem in the collection of paintings completed by German-American Romanticist Albert Bierstadt during his time spent capturing the aforementioned region. This painting was made of oil and was painted on board. It was completed in the year 1872. This painting captures the essence sublimity. These mountains unleash an image of untamed growth and power. Bierstadt’s mountains were constructed to maintain an image of glory and persistence with the same ferocity in which he painted rivers and wildlife. The painting’s fore and middle ground, monstrous in size, are dwarfed by the larger peaks looming in the background. Above them, a pale blue sky stretches forth without so much as a touch of a cloud. The contrast existing between the lower and upper mountains are only heightened by the bitterly even tone. It is the consistency and specific attention to lines and detail that cause Sierra Nevada to stand out. From this distance the picturesque mountains still hold a strong grip. Its strength is felt in the barrenness of the landscape and the lack of human influence on this region. The paintings are set up as a reminder of the unimaginable strength and ferocity that nature holds independent of our existence on earth. This painting is meant to cast the same feeling as Friedrich’s wanderer above his sea of mist. It is meant to capture the magnitude and ferocity of the land between its borders.
