Albert Bierstadt was an American painter known for his grand, sweeping paintings of the American west. He was a part of the Hudson River School of Art, which focuses on realism with romantic, glowing lighting. 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. Against such an immense backdrop, the Native American encampment and hunters in the foreground could go almost unnoticed. Upon its completion, the painting toured the United States for a year.

About Giclee Prints
Pronounced 'Zhee-Clay', the word comes from 'gicleur' which is the French technical term for an inkjet nozzle.
Giclee printing is a type of inkjet printing - but not all inkjet prints can be considered a giclee. In order for a print to be considered a true giclee, it must meet at least two basic criteria:
1. The paper or substrate used to actually print the final piece must be of archival quality. Typically it will say it is acid free and consists of a 100% cotton base.
2.True giclees must be printed using pigment-based inks rather than the dye-based inks found in lower cost inkjets. Pigment-based inks have a longer life span that can last anywhere from 100 to 201 years without significant fading.
The quality of the giclee print rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes and is commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
