Landscape paintings are a classic subject for wall art, and would fit with almost any decor and appease a variety of tastes. We invite you to view a selection of Great American Landscapes by the painters of the Hudson River School! Click on the pictures if you are interested in hanging one in your home.
A key member in the Hudson River School of Art, Bierstadt aimed to depict the vastness of the mountains, masterfully capturing the contrast of the regions shaded in storm against the ones bathed in sunlight. Peering through a break in the clouds in the far distance is a snow-capped Mt. Rosalie, named after Bierstadt’s wife. Albert himself became so well liked in Colorado that they named a mountain after him.
This winter landscape is placid and bare, the sweeping multicolored horizon draws the attention off to the distance. The spare and clever use of color would provide a much needed pop of color in minimally adorned rooms or a refreshing simplicity to rooms that already have a lot of decor.
