Albert Bierstadt in New York & New England
April 28- November 3, 2103

Albert Bierstadt (1830 – 1902) was one of the most renowned landscape painters in the United States during the second half of the nineteenth century. Born in Germany to a family who immigrated to New Bedford, MA in 1832, Bierstadt was the epitome of the American success story. His international acclaim derived from his panoramic paintings of the American west, yet it is his idyllic paintings of the unspoiled wilderness, mountains, meadows, and waterways in the White Mountains, the Hudson Valley, and other scenic locations in New York and New England that correspond favorably to other Hudson River school works. On excursions to select artistic sites for his brothers Charles and Edward to photograph for their stereographs, Bierstadt often found new romantic subjects for himself. This exhibition, curated by independent scholar Annette Blaugrund, former director of the National Academy Museum, will reveal the artist’s pioneering use of stereography and provide a rare opportunity to see Bierstadt’s fresh oil studies of nature alongside of some of his highly finished paintings.
