Accompanying an army expedition as its recorder, he sketched firsthand impressions of the new landscape and its people in pencil and pen-and-ink. Bierstadt’s spectacular western landscapes would lead within a decade to his celebration as the leading American painter of the West, but in this modest early work, it was the comparatively mundane details of native family life that captured his interest. Certain features are rendered with notable virtuosity—the lone, tall tree and the left-most teepee—but in general this work embodies a sense of quiet repose and timelessness, different from the theatrical vistas and stunning sites for which the artist is best known. Bierstadt was one of the first American observers and recorders of native life, but his intent was less scientific and anthropological than artistic: back in the studio, where he composed his monumental oil paintings, he often combined images from very different locales for dramatic effect. The camera tripod visible in this work is a remnant of another study trip by Bierstadt, who inserted it presumably to testify to his presence at the scene.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Bequest of C.R.

An interchangeable symbol for the modern artist, Eakins’ singer asserts that the human being, in all its physical and psychological complexity, should remain the ultimate source of artistic inspiration. The Opera Singer and the verso, Untitled (Woman on balcony waving white handkerchief), appear to be preliminary sketches for other paintings. Whereas many painters perform preparatory drawings for their works, Eakins preferred to sketch directly in paint. Eakins believed that painting and drawing require fundamentally different ways of seeing; an artist should not use one to arrive at the other. While European innovation would change the course of American art, offering new and exciting routes for expression, Eakins’ legacy of deep looking—at the human body, face, character—sits at the very beginning and, indeed, the very heart of American modernism.

In fact, the U.S. Army years earlier had evicted the Indians who once inhabited the valley. And in 1864 the federal government set aside a large tract of land there for public recreation, prohibiting settlement as well as future mining and development. Shortly after Hill’s earliest trip to Yosemite in 1862, his gorgeous mountain views began to enjoy both popular and critical success. In 1884 the British artist moved from his base in San Francisco and established a studio in Yosemite, where he produced an estimated five thousand paintings of the valley for the tourist market.

Inness was well-versed in the traditions of landscape painting in Europe and America, and was deeply influenced by the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, an eighteenth-century theologian who proposed a philosophy in which earthly and heavenly realms are united. Originally titled The Shawangunk Mountains, New York, scholars believed Inness created this painting during a trip to Europe in the early 1870s. Other works from this period are thought to depict Étretat, in Normandy, France, and the work has been retitled to reflect this. Scholars now believe that this body of work might actually be Porto d’Anzio, Italy. Despite these potential varied locations, the scene embodies the dramatic effects of weather and atmosphere. According to Inness’ son, in his later years Inness rarely painted directly from nature, “He would study for days, then with the most dynamic energy, creating the composition from his own brain, but with so thorough an underlying knowledge of nature that the key-note of his landscape was always truth and sincerity and absolute fidelity to nature.” ", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Gift of Latane Temple, 1982", "Copyright_Type" : "public domain", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "painting", "Creation_Place2" : "American", "Department" : "American and Contemporary Art", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/1982.1306.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/1982.1306.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/1982.1306.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/1982.1306.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "3113", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 16662, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/16662", "Disp_Access_No" : "2002.2870", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "circa 1890s", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1885", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1895", "Disp_Title" : "Wane of Summer", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "Wane of Summer", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "George Inness", "Sort_Artist" : "Inness, George", "Disp_Dimen" : "40 cm x 59.7 cm (15 3/4 in. x 23 1/2 in.)", "Disp_Height" : "40 cm", "Disp_Width" : "59.7 cm", "Dimen_Extent" : "canvas", "Medium" : "Oil", "Support" : "canvas", "Disp_Medium" : "Oil on canvas", "Info_Page_Comm" : "Greens and golds dominate the palette of this late, informal landscape depicting the edge of a wood where it opens onto a meadow.

Painted just a few years before his death, this work exemplifies Inness' contribution to 19th-century American landscape painting.

Americans back east were eager to discover the uninhabited western landscape through paintings like this and through reproductions. To make an even more compelling picture, Moran took certain liberties with features of the undeniably spectacular landscapes he observed on his trips to Wyoming during the summers of 1871 and 1872. Loosely and impressionistically painted, The Golden Hour is neither a major nor a typical work by Moran, but its magical intensity successfully communicates the artist’s deep fondness for the first western site he ever sketched.

The plains landscape deeply affected the artist: “Whoever crossed the plains at that period…could hardly fail to be impressed with its vastness and silence.” This intimate painting depicts a herd of buffalo along the banks of Nebraska’s Platte River. Enabling a heightened sense of the vastness he had described, the artist kept the buffalo at a distance, a small, quiet presence. And yet, the ominous clouds could be taken as tacit symbols of the encroaching migration of white settlers to the region—a development that was accelerated by the First Transcontinental Railroad built along the Platte River. Just a decade after this work was painted, those traveling west by train would no longer witness Whittredge’s vision, as westward expansion and overhunting caused the near eradication of the American bison.
