A Beautiful Bierstadt Painting (DailyArt Magazine)

Bierstadt Sunlight and Shadow: Study
Albert Bierstadt, Sunlight and Shadow: Study, 1855. Newark, NJ, the Newark Museum.

I saw this spectacular little oil sketch at the Newark Museum, and I instantly fell in love. (In my recent post about unexpected surprises at the museum, I definitely had this gem in mind.) So, when DailyArt Magazine asked me to pick an artwork for Painting of the Week, the choice was clear. Click here to learn about Sunlight and Shadow by Albert Bierstadt, both the sketch and the larger painting.
