Gloss: The author of one of the first guidebooks to Yellowstone National Park wrote that he "had the pleasure of sitting beside and conversing with the famous American artist, Bierstadt, as he was seated on a point in the Grand Canyon about 400 feet below the surface engaged in reproducing in oil, upon canvas, the Grand Canyon and Falls. It was indeed marvelous to see with what rapidity and accuracy these scenes were by him transferred to the canvas."

Yellowstone Falls. Albert Bierstadt, 1881
Another iconic Yellowstone work painted to its finest by Bierstadt. VERY valuable.
Whitney Western Art Museum: Albert Biertstadt's "Yellowstone Falls"
All collections need to have at least one Albert Bierstadt.
Well, this place won't exist anymore and it's pretty beautiful. I think Bierstadt's depiction captures the feel of Yellowstone Falls perfectly.
ca. 1881: Albert Bierstadt
Painting. Yellowstone Falls by Albert Bierstadt. Buffalo Bill purposely situated the town of Cody in proximity to Yellowstone Park.
No matter where you stand along the rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the view of the Lower Falls is impressive. The cascade plummets over three hundred feet. Its base is enveloped in mist and is often crowned with a rainbow. The steep and jagged canyon walls range in color from rusty red to buttery yellow and even purple. For artists, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is a daunting, but irresistible, subject.
