historical and artistic gallery

Hello everyone! Welcome to my google art gallery. My gallery has an overview of historical events that happened in 1800s. In addition, it has a lot of pictures of artistic movements specially on romanticism. It also shows how different artists had different perspectives on many things. For example I have two similar artworks drawn by different artists in my gallery the only difference between the two artworks is that the artists used different types of colors which made the pictures look very different and it will change your attitude towards each of them. As you are looking at my gallery pay close attention to the colors because they will give clues about the tone of the artist that will help you identify the theme of these artworks. Hope you all enjoy!

This artwork shows how people in 19th centuries worked hard to earn their livings and raised animals.

this artwork demonstrates the theme of liberty. The sun represents the freedom that native americans were looking for.
The Fall of Tequendama, Near Bogotá, New Granada, Frederic Church (American, b.1826, d.1900), 1854, From the collection of: Cincinnati Art Museum
This artwork's theme is romanticism because it has a lot of details of nature and simplicity.
A Dream of Italy, Robert S. Duncanson, 1865, From the collection of: Birmingham Museum of Art
I like this artwork because it has a lot of details in the background. Instead of having the mountains as the background only the artist actually took the time and put lots of details.
Bridal Veil Falls, Yosemite, Albert Bierstadt, 1871 - 1873, From the collection of: North Carolina Museum of Art
I like this artwork because the water fountain looks very natural and fresh.
Mist in Kanab Canyon, Utah, Thomas Moran, 1892, From the collection of: Smithsonian American Art Museum
This artwork is interesting because the artist used colors that contradict and he used dark colors in the foreground and lighter colors in the background.

I like this picture because it is very colorful and it immediately gets the viewer's attention because of its amazing colors.
Flower Still Life with Bird's Nest, Severin Roesen, American (born Germany), 1816 - c. 1872, 1853, From the collection of: Philadelphia Museum of Art

This artwork shows what people back in 1800 did to survive and provide food for their families.
View of Pike's Peak, George Caleb Bingham, 1872, From the collection of: Amon Carter Museum of American Art
This implies that there is only a few people left who still value nature because there's only one person in the picture.
Ships in harbor, Robert Salmon, 1805, From the collection of: Yale Center for British Art
This artwork makes me feel depressed because the artist used very light colors and there is nothing exciting in it. The only thing I like is how the sea looks so real and the shadow.
Florida Sunrise, Martin Johnson Heade, c. 1890 - 1900, From the collection of: The White House
I really like the luminism in this artwork because it looks like the sun is rising which might mean freedom is coming up also.

I like this artwork because it shows how animals live peacefully in nature and get what they need such as water to survive.

This art work shows the women roles back in 1800s. It demonstrates how women had to cook and do house chores.
The Cutting Scene, Mandan O-kee-pa Ceremony, George Catlin, 1832, From the collection of: Denver Art Museum
I like this artwork because it is historically significant. It shows how native Americans were tortured to death and how they were segregated.
