Visitors’ View: Albert Bierstadt

/ Collections - In the Community - Visitors' View

Happy birthday to artist Albert Bierstadt, who was born on January 7, 1830. Known for his breathtaking landscape paintings of the American West, Bierstadt is also the artist of one of the BMA’s most beloved, most important, and most photographed works in our collection!

Take a visitors’ view of Bierstadt’s Looking Down Yosemite Valley, California, as we share some of our favorite Instagram shots, in honor of his birthday.
