America's leading painter of the Western landscape, Albert Bierstadt's interest in the pristine wilderness also included the careful rendering of its native animals. On each of his expeditions he made numerous, detailed oil on paper studies of the flora and fauna. Since few are dated, it is difficult to assign these works to specific trips, especially since Bierstadt visited the Swiss Alps on several occasions over the span of his career.
