#143 - Seal Rock by Albert Bierstadt

This is the magnificent Seal Rock by the renown American master Albert Bierstadt (1830-1902).  Although born in Germany, Bierstadt's family moved to Massachusetts when he was just two years old, and it was in his adopted homeland were the artist would find the inspiration for his life's work.  With his spellbinding depictions of  nature's unspoiled majesty, this enterprising artist became the most honored of 19th century American artists.

In the Seal Rock, Bierstadt captures the drama and beauty of the American Pacific coast with theatrical tension and uncontested skill. On the right, a proud promontory rises from the foaming surf to provide a rocky playground for a group of frolicking seals. Wet and glistening from their last swim, they arch their curious heads in every direction.

#144 - Boston Harbor at Sunset by Fritz Hugh Lane

#145 - Twilight in the Wilderness by Frederic Edwin Church

This is the magnificent Twilight In The Wilderness by Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900).  Born to a wealthy family, the young artist had the connections and talent to be apprenticed at eighteen to Thomas Cole, then, the premier landscape painter in America. By the time he was but twenty-two years old Church's career was well established- his canvases selling to museums and discriminating collectors with regularity. He traveled widely throughout New England and New York, hiking and sketching the unsullied landscape from spring through fall. It is this intimate knowledge of his subject which made Church one of the leading painters in the celebrated American landscape movement known as The Hudson River School.

In Twilight In The Wilderness, the artist captures the theatrical grandeur of the undefiled North American woodlands. Now housed in The Cleveland Museum of Art, this extraordinary picture continues to inspire art and nature lovers alike.  Our team of European trained artists has translated its eloquence into an oversized chart so that you, the stitching enthusiast, can recreate this priceless treasure with equal poetry.
