Yosemite Valley

Robert Werling

1980

Because of the importance of Albert Bierstadt’s Looking Down Yosemite Valley, California to the museum’s American collection, the BMA has sought out works by other artists that depict the locale. The Museum has superb holdings of early Yosemite photographs by Carleton E. Watkins and Eadweard Muybridge, and later works by Ansel Adams, easily the most famous photographer of Yosemite National Park. A student of Adams, Robert Werling is among the most significant photographers working in the park today.
