Sunset in the Yosemite Valley - Description

Sunset in the Yosemite Valley is an oil painting created in 1869 byGerman- American Romantic painter Albert Bierstadt of the Rocky Mountain and Hudson River Schools. This piece, done in oil, was painted during one of the artist’s many trips painting the American West. A Romantic painting, it is important to notice the lack of humans in this picture as well as the dominant size of the mountains and valley ahead of the observer’s point at a great distance from the horizon. The artist’s point was to render a landscape whose beauty could not be matched by anything other than the hands of the artist rendering it. The subject of this painting is the land and the sun’s rays illuminating whatever surface it falls onto. The oil paint is vibrant and rich. Take heed of the contrast occurring between the dark, foreboding sky in the upper left corner of this work and the brilliant shades of yellow deployed by the artist to make the sunset “pop.” The precision of detail, the flawless brushstrokes and building of texture without creating an uneven surface serves to make a masterwork out of the incredible beauty surrounding the Yosemite region. The emotion is clean and impertinent to criticism of subject for the only thing to criticize about a painting such as this could be the excessive use of light which only serves to compliment the natural beauty occurring in this valley.
