Albert Bierstadt’s superbly crafted work performed to a market keen, within the 1860s, for spectacular views of the nation’s frontier. Bierstadt painted Among the many Sierra Nevada, California in his Rome studio. He then confirmed the canvas in Berlin, London and St. Petersburg, earlier than delivery it to the US.
Works reminiscent of this fueled the picture of America as a promised land simply when Europeans have been immigrating to this nation in nice numbers. (Smithsonian American Artwork Museum label) .
