Description:

Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902) was the nineteenth century chronicler par excellence of the American West. He undertook several trips to the Rocky Mountains and Yosemite Valley, where he made sketches of what would later become his most famous paintings. This brilliant chromolithograph depicts light breaking through a bank of thunderclouds above a valley. Indians on horseback dash down a mountainside toward an encampment of teepees along the valley. This image brilliantly captures American landscape painting of the period at its most heightened and rapturous. This chromolithograph was issued by Thomas McLean as a pair to The Rocky Mountains (Landers Peak). As many as 20 stones stones were used to capture the rich, sumptuous palette of the original painting, which now resides in the Brooklyn Museum of Art. (Nancy Anderson and Linda S.

Book Description [Published by Thomas McLean, Printed by the Kell Brothers, 1869]. 18.5 x 32.25in mount opening, 1869. Chromolithograph, laid down on backing board, with old mount, two tiny scratches in rock in top right, small indentation near initials in right bottom corner, and small associated flaws, This is another of Bierstadt's 'Great Pictures' completed by January 1866, a companion to 'Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak'. As his rival Frederic Church did, the format for a 'Great Picture' was to produce a large panoramic landscape and exhibit it to a wide public at a one picture touring exhibition, which was accompanied by explanatory brochures and promoted by reproductions. Even though privately owned it was exhibited at McLean's London gallery in 1867. In the same year, Bierstadt took it with 'Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak' to Osborne House to show Queen Victoria. They were both exhibited at McLean's in 1868 when the production of this chromolithograph was under way. These prints were sold laid down to emulate paintings. The surface even recreates the cracklure of oil paintings. The announcement of this chromolithograph with its companion was first made in January 1868 but they were not issued until autumn 1869. Accounts of their production vary one suggesting twenty stones were employed and another thirty.This print is a sumptuous reproduction of one of the finest early paintings to depict the American West. Commenting on these prints which were then being exhibited at Goupil's of New York, the 'Post' newspaper (4 Oct. 1869) wrote 'They are unquestionably the finest examples of chromolithographic art'.The original painting was purchased by the Englishman Thomas Kennard for $20,000. It is now in Brooklyn Museum. In 1863, Bierstadt visited Colorado, where he made studies for this picture. The mountain is named after Rosalie Osborne Ludlow who Bierstadt married in 1866. In 1869, when the picture was exhibited at the Paris salon Napoleon III awarded Bierstadt the Legion d'Honneur.Reference: ANDERSON, N. & FERBER, L.S. 'Albert Bierstadt Art & Enterprise' Exhibition Catalogue. Brooklyn Museum, 1991. This chromolithograph is discussed on pp. 274-275, figure 90, and illustrated in colour, Plate 79 on p. 292.
