The Art of Artist Point

Thomas Moran

The largest portrait is from Thomas Moran and towers above our main room. Thomas Moran accompanied the Heyden expedition of Yellowstone. With the help of photographs and his on-site sketches, Moran painted many images of extraordinary natural features. Heyden subsequently showed Moran’s painting to the
Congressman he lobbied to see a law passed in 1872 creating Yellowstone as the first national park. Moran was noted for his larger-than-life interpretations of the West during the late 1800’s. The mural in the main room is from the Green River area of Wyoming.

Albert Bierstadt

The five 6’ by 6’ murals on the walls over the booth areas were inspired by Albert Bierstadt works. In 1859, his lifetime’s opportunity came when he asked to join General Lander’s expedition to survey a wagon route to the Pacific. This same route later became known as the Oregon Trail. Bierstadt spent the summer
sketching in the Wind River Range and the Shoshone Indian country. In 1860, Bierstadt exhibited the first of his panoramic paintings from this Rocky Mountain sketches.
