View of Long's Peak from Estes Park
Gift of William F. Davidson
By painting a night scene, Bierstadt emphasized the affects of snow on the distinctive shape of Long's Peak. This study resulted from Bierstadt's two-week sketching trip to Estes Park, Colorado. Between December 23, 1876 and January 9, 1877, the artist studied "the park, with all its marvelous natural beauties" and made "sketches of winter scenery and effects in the high mountains."
See Hassrick and Trenton, The Rocky Mountains, page 145 and footnote 133 on page 366, for documentation that the site is Long's Peak and for the dating during a known trip of Albert Bierstadt's to Estes Park. Oil on paper mounted on board and wooden strainer
