Artful Insight - Albert Bierstadt

Dec 19, 2016

Albert Bierstadt, namesake of one of Colorado’s 14-ers will be the subject of our next Artful Insight. The Hudson River school artist traveled throughout Colorado and the West eventually becoming known for his sublime western landscapes, six of which are on exhibit at the museum. Bierstadt had a deep connection to the western landscape which is evident as he refers to the west, “man is so fortunate to dwell in this American Garden of Eden.”
