The painting View of Chimney Rock, Ogalillalh Sioux Village in Foreground was made in the year of 1860, by Albert Bierstadt. It shows a tribe of native Americans on a river bank. In the distance, we can see the rock formation Chimney Rock.
The painting has a beautiful light treatment, prevalent in the pictures of this artist. Famous for his idyllic landscape renderings, Bierstadt portraited the Ogalillalh tribe in this landscape. In the foreground, there’s a shallow river. In it there are two men riding horses, a dog interacting with the two and by the bank of the river, a little further to the left side of the canvas, there seem to be kids swimming in the water. One of the kids seems to be talking to someone sitting on the grass.
Three tents stand on the right side of the picture. A fourth one can be seen only as a detail next to the right border of the canvas. In the distance, there are some people with horses. They are not riding these, only standing next to them, probably accompanying while they graze. The field has green grass, and there’s also a bush on the bottom right corner of the picture. This gives an impression of prosperity.
The shape of the tents resonates the one of the Chimney Rock, which stands tall in the distance. Both elements reflect in the waters of the river. Above the rock formation is the setting sun. This and the man riding a horse inside the river, who is looking in the direction of the Rock, make the composition focus on this natural element.
Usually, Bierstadt doesn’t portrait people in his landscapes. This is an exception which shows a little bit of the lifestyle of the native Americans he would come across during his travels through the United States of America.
Bierstadt was one of the most celebrated painters of his time. He was a sort of celebrity, for his works showed America under a divine light. On top of that, the landscapes this artist captured were new for most Americans, for Bierstadt went on exploratory journeys during the Westward expansion. He painted these places where no other artist had gone before. The monumental canvases he developed inspired by these sceneries were sold for significant amounts of money.
