Description:

Signed Lower Left: Saml Colman Medium: Watercolor on paper Dimensions: Paper size: 3 3/4" x 6 1/4"; Frame: 9 1/8" x 11 3/4" This deeply atmospheric watercolor beautifully captures a pioneer wagon train as it makes its way across the plains below Mount Tabor, Oregon. The settlers seem to have made camp surrounded by the spectacular landscape of the expansive West. The silence of the prairie, with only the whisper of windblown grasses, is spectacularly conveyed as is the majestic splendor of the infinite sky. Like so many artists that became inspired by the landscape of the West, Samuel Colman came from the east. Born in Portland, Maine, he grew up in New York City, where his father's publishing house on Broadway was a center of activity for artists and writers. His own interest in are was fostered by this early exposure to the New York art world, and after studying for a brief time under Asher B. Durand, Colman painted throughout the 1850s and 1860s in the manner of the Hudson River School. At the very young age of twenty-two, he was named an associate of the National Academy of Design, signaling the acclaim he had already achieved. In 1860, Colman departed for Europe to broaden his artistic repertoire, but it was when he first traveled to the American West, in 1866, that he found one of his greatest sources of inspiration. Spurred by the sights and expanses of the West, in the mid 1880s Colman began a series of trips out west in search of landscape subjects such as this one, done in 1888. The quiet but monumental beauty that he witnessed, and captured on paper, represents a quintessential vision of the American spirit as embodied by the country's vast landscape.
