Yosemite Valley - Description

Yosemite Valley, painted by German-American Romanticist Albert Bierstadt in 1866 is a window into the magnificent California landscape from a perch beneath a small grove of trees. This painting embodies many philosophies of the Romantic period by celebrating images of untamed growth in objects such as the trees and mountains. The mountains stand out strikingly against a grey sky. Treetops remain visible for hundreds of yards into the distance as one would observe through a sharp lens. The water is reflective and holds a mirror image. Colors do not swirl together without meaning. Each holds its place on the canvas, controlled with painstaking precision on Bierstadt’s behalf. This landscape demonstrates Bierstadt’s ability to capture vast amounts of space on one canvas with a particular attention to the very last details. It is the amount of space covered on this canvas that makes this painting such an alluring creation. Artists of the Romantic movement lashed out against overcrowded cities and the pangs of industrialism. Large landscapes were meant to be a promotion for the great outdoors and limitless amount of space that existed within the country’s borders. A canvas such as Yosemite Valley is meant to act as a playground for the trapped, a setting where the imagination could roam free from an office or home and transform it with their own will. The glory imagination is celebrated in this painting.
