Indians, buffalo and storms - the American West in the 19th Century Toby Faber Wednesday 19 June 2019

Artists were never very far behind the explorers who opened up the American west in the 19thC.    Painters like Alfred Miller, Frederick Church and Albert Bierstadt have left us powerful,sometimes romanticised, record of the country and people the settlers found. This is a story on a big scale, and after a period of deep neglect the artists and paintings are very much back in vogue.
