Albert Bierstadt N.A. (1830-1902)
Mt. Baker from the Fraser River (1890)
14 x 19 oil/paper laid down.
The location from which Bierstadt painted this view of Mt. Baker was determined with the assistance of noted mountaineer, author and artist, Dee Molenaar, and Bud Harwick of the Mount Baker Club.
This painting was painted on the same trip as the Brooklyn Museum’s “Mt. Baker, Washington, from the Frazier (sic) River (1890). On August 28, 1890, Bierstadt wrote to William C. Van Horn of the Canadian Pacific Railroad that Mount Baker “will certainly make a fine picture” and says he will go there in about ten days to two weeks.
