Art 111/224n- Kinnunen

Albert Bierstadt, Looking Down Yosemite Valley. Oil on canvas 1865. This is an epic landscape that uses lighting and an atmospheric perspective to give a sense of vastness. The colors are earth tones varying in value. The darker values are in the foreground and the lighter values are in the background, this gives a sense of distance that is very effective. It is triangularly oriented with the mountain on the left forming a triangle that leads the eye toward the water and into the fading valley.
