WE BUY Albert Bierstadt
Albert Bierstadt (1830 - 1902)
In April of 1859, Albert Bierstadt joined the expedition along the Overland Trail, led by Colonel Frederick W. Lander, a trip that would soon give rise to the most productive and important phase of his career. Armed with sketches and stereographs, he returned to New York City in the autumn of 1859, establishing a studio in the Tenth Street Building. There he produced the first of the panoramic western landscapes that established his reputation on an international level. From New York he would make many excursions west - soon as far as California - where he painted the first known rendition of the Yosemite Valley in 1864. That same year, the artist's The Rocky Mountains sold for $25,000, the highest price yet to be paid for a work of art. Today, the painting is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
