The Domes of the Yosemite

After Albert Bierstadt, (American, 1830-1902)


Bierstadt’s trips west in 1859 and 1863 resulted in appropriately grand paintings including his 1867 ten-by-fifteen foot canvas, Domes of the Yosemite.

Three years later, that painting was translated by German artisans into this popular chromo-lithograph requiring the sequential printing of hand-drawn lithographic stones, each bearing one of the sixteen colors needed to build the image.

Mr. W. J. Holliday, Jr.; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
