    Youth artwork inspired by Yosemite Valley by Albert Bierstadt, 1880. 78.15.

     

    Many of the paintings in The Rockwell collection are of National Parks in the United States. The National Park System was established 100 years ago, and it was American painters, such as Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran, who influenced some of our nation’s presidents (Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson) to make the decision to preserve and protect these special areas of American land.
