Albert Bierstadt became famous as the German who photographed the Wild West. Born in Solingen in 1830, Bierstadt grew up as the son of German immigrants on the American East Coast. Not much is known about his early years, but at the age of twenty, the self-taught began a career as a drawing teacher. He probably inherited the talent from his mother, a cousin of Johann Peter Hasenclever , the founder of Genre painting in Germany. In 1853, Bierstadt set out on his way home, hoping to gain formal education in painting with his famous relative. After Hasenclevers surprising death, the young artist found support with friends and studied four years at the Academy of Arts Düsseldorf landscape painting with Carl Friedrich Lessing and Andreas Achenbach .

His own style, especially his love for the monumental, was developed by the artist during a trip to Italy with his friend, the history painter Emanuel Leutze , who grew up in North America.

After his return to the United States in 1859, he took part in the expedition to the west of the continent, which eventually made him famous. Bierstadt accompanied a soldier of the US Army, who was to explore a covered wagon route on behalf of the Ministry of the Interior. From this expedition Bierstadt returned a large number of sketches, drawings and photographs to New York. Their exhibition was a brilliant success and made the artist famous not only in the US, but also in Germany and England.

Albert Bierstadt died in 1902 in New York. In addition to his famous photographs of the Wild West, he has also left a number of impressive paintings to the world. One of the best known, storm in the Rocky Mountains from 1866, hangs in the Brooklyn Museum in New York. © Meisterdrucke
