Lower Falls of the Yellowstone
Gift of the Mary A. H. Rumsey Foundation
More than one hundred years after Thomas
"Yellowstone" Moran memorialized the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River in the first monumental painting of the subject, Kathy Wipfler poised her canvas and paintbrush near the very spot where Moran stood. Yellowstone National Park has been an outdoor studio for generations of painters. Still today, artists travel to America's first national park to capture the unaltered beauty and wilderness. What was once a long and arduous journey to see the wonders of the landscape is now an easily accessible day trip on paved roadways and groomed walking paths.
Wipfler painted the field sketch for this painting in late June of 2006 while tucked among trees off the beaten path of Artist Point. The large painting was completed later during the winter months in her studio in Jackson, Wyoming. Lower Falls of the Yellowstone is a colorful and fresh picture which captures the spirit of the landscape and awe-inspiring impression conveyed through the artist.
