One of the best-known early painters of the American West, Albert Bierstadt helped introduce East Coast audiences to the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada ranges. The upcoming American Paintings, Furniture & Decorative Arts auction, offered by Doyle, will highlight one of Bierstadt’s works, titled Sunset over the Trees. He took many trips to the West to produce detailed sketches, which he would later use when painting large, panoramic canvases. Bierstadt was selected to present his paintings to Queen Victoria and won commissions to create murals for the Capitol Building.
Also among the key items is a Tiffany & Co. Chrysanthemum flatware set. Introduced in 1880 by Charles T. Grosjean, the pattern was inspired by the Japanese Imperial family’s preference for the flower. The available flatware is decorated with chrysanthemum flowers and buds, set against a background of leaves. A painting of Nevada Falls by Thomas Hill will also be featured in the sale. Hill is known for his views of the Yosemite Valley. Browse the full collection and register to bid on Invaluable.
