For January, I am going to give a free copy of a Masters of Art series book to each of my top five commenters. The books are published by Prestel. You'll receive one of the titles: Rembrandt, Monet or Van Gogh. The books are lovely and will go along well with our visits to the Denver Art Museum and the upcoming Art Institute of Chicago.
For today... a few oil-paint-on-canvas treasures from the Denver Art Museum's regular collection.
|Charles Russell (American), The Hold-Up 1899|
|Indian Woman with Boy, Joseph H. Sharp (1859-1953)|
Did you know that Albert Bierstadt's paintings were influential in the development and appointment of our National Parks? Daughter Paige is a big fan of his work, partly for this reason.
|Albert Bierstadt (American), Yosemite Falls, 1863|
|Grand Canyon Lodge by Thomas Moran, American, 1837-1926|
|Yosemite by Albert Bierstadt, about 1870|
|Estes Park, 1877 by Albert Bierstadt|
Next Post: On Monday we'll look at the architecture of Denver
