Painting Sierra Nevada
Sierra Nevada Ode To Bierstadt is definitely not a reproduction per se, but rather a "close" to and inspired by Bierstadt's work - Bierstadt himself was quite the idealist and being one myself I further romantisized his painting with more true to life colors, although still keeping the dreamy atmosphere - Bierstadt's style was very realistc but my interpretation is very impressionistic unless one stands right back from the work.
I certainly dedicate and attribute this to Bierstadt, but I'm none too sure he would approve :)
Albert Bierstadts Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California is a scenic canvas oil painting on display at the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC. Created in 1868, this enormous painting is approximately six by ten feet in size (Honour and Fleming, 2000).
The subject matter of this piece is typical of Bierstadt, who is known for his detailed landscapes, especially those of the Rockies and Sierras of the American West. Collectively, Alberts works are manipulated and slightly idealized scenes based on actual places he visited.
