2.60 | ca. 1888 | H: 60.25 in, width: 96.5 in, Frame height: 68.5 in, Frame width: 105.5 in | The Last of the Buffalo | Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Trust Fund Purchase | With bleeding buffalo and bleached skulls in the foreground, the landscape artist Bierstadt represented the theme of wildlife vanishing from the wilderness. He made the shapes of distant mountains repeat the shapes of the main figures, thus underlining the interdependent relationships in nature. The Last of the Buffalo implies other endings. | LLC: ABierstadt | Book: Redrawing Boundaries: Perspectives on Western American Art; Institute of Western American Art, Denver; and the University of Washington Press, Seattle; 2007, page 75 | 2.60.jpg | 2.60.jpg | 2.60.jpg | 2.60.JPG | 2.60.jpg | 2.60.jpg | 2.60.web.jpg | Animal | hunting | Indian | Other | Painting | oil on canvas | Bierstadt, Albert
