An absolutely exquisite synergy of light, shadow and saturated color sing a love song to the mountainous country the artist called "the best material for the artist in the world." Bierstadt established his reputation by working up views of European landscapes, but moved on to legitimize the American West as a serious topic for oil painting. He left a legacy of over 300 works. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin in a deep ebony hue highlighted by a faux mat and a classic, understated border in an antique gold finish.
