Notes

Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902) Island Lake, Wind River Range, Wyoming 1861, oil on canvas

Museum Purchase The Board of Trustees dedicates this painting to Mr. Wiley T. Buchanan III in recognition of his faithful service as Chairman of the Whitney Gallery of Western Art Advisory Board of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, 2005-2009.
In 1859, Bierstadt accompanied an expedition led by Colonel Frederick Lander to the Wind River Mountains. Making oil studies and taking stereographic photographs, Bierstadt brought back his first western imagery to New York. Island Lake features the recessive planes, meticulous brushwork, and highly polished surface texture characteristic of the artist's work at this time.
