Sunset in the Rockies - Description

Sunset in the Rockies was completed by german-American Romanticist Albert Bierstadt in the year 1866. An oil painting, the picture was completed while on tour of the American West. Bierstadt is well known for his depictions of the West and for painting elaborately designed landscapes rich in color and precise in detail. His technique and style can be observed in the way that reflections shimmer off of the pond as well as in the details of the brush and tree trunks growing along the banks. Notice the treetops along the tops of the mountain peaks along the right side of the paintin against the grey sky laden with red overtones. This painting holds true to the notion in Romantic art that humans can not match the beauty and power of such a landscape and therefore are not included. The subject is the Sun setting over the horizon and illuminated scene unfolding in its twilight. Bierstadt managed to capture the natural serenity of this special hour in the bosom of the Rocky Mountains. Take heed of the subtle blending of orange and blue in the clouds and how they come to coalesce with the sides of the rock edifice. The canvas is filled with warmth and radiant splendor emanating from the sun, a mass of white that stands out sharply and catches the eye, directing it on a path through the fertile valley and into its magnificent aura.
