Mount St Helens, Columbia River, Oregon - Description

Mount St. Helens, Columbia River is an oil painting by the late German-American landscape Romantic artist Albert Bierstadt. Measuring at thirty two and one quarter by eighteen inches, this painting is an eerie depiction of the peak of the massive volcano as it appeared in the year 1862, one hundred eighteen years before its famous eruption. Pastel tones of pink and red swirl about its basin and sky, leading gradually to an atmosphere of indigo. In the foreground, Bierstadt’s love of trees and thick wilderness provide a contrast of verdant green to the opposite mass of red dominating the canvas. The eye is meant to travel down the hillside and become lost for some time in the enormous valley before rising up to meet the enormous volcano. This painting embodies the Romantic quality of an artist standing before an enormous expanse, leaving the viewer to comprehend the sheer amount of space stretched forth to see. Rather than strictly focusing on the simple beauty of the mountain, this work captures a sense of something far more powerful and full of force. The reader is invited to embrace the unimaginable tempest brewing in the belly of this formation and the tension that is formed with the knowledge that such energy is acting beneath the seemingly peaceful surface of this landscape masterpiece. Bierstadt’s Mount St. Helens is a Romantic masterpiece in the fullest sense.
