Ever a masterful painter of the great Western American landscapes, Thomas Moran spent much of the earlier years of his career focused on painting the area around the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone Park and the like. In the later years of his painting career, his focus turned more towards the less known vistas of the land, such as the Teton Range, a chain of mountains in Wyoming, which were the subject matter of a few of his paintings, including the now famous The Three Tetons, which hung in the Oval Office during Barack Obama’s term as President of the United States.
This oil on canvas finished in 1899 and now in possession of the Denver Art Museum albeit not in the show, portrays the Teton Range, which got its name from French voyageurs who felt it bore a striking resemblance to a part of the female anatomy. The mountains lie in the background of the composition, shrouded in clouds and fog and covered in snow, through which the signs of spring start showing, pre-empting better weather. Behind the mountains, an early moon starts to make an appearance in the afternoon sky.
In the foreground, Moran portrayed an abundant river, flowing down from the mountains, its waters engorged by the melting of the snow, raising clouds of river spray as it hits the rock along the riverbed. Around the river, mighty trees and placid turf contrast with the chaotic nature of the running water. Thus, the painting not only contrasts movement with placidity but also shows how one, the placidity of the mountains in the background with their slowly melting snowy coverage, influences the other, in the form of the engorged river renewing itself for the spring, which will bring new life to the forest.
Enhancing the dynamism of the painting, Moran employs strong diagonal lines, that guide the observer’s eye towards the bottom of the composition, following the abundant waters of the flowing river. Moran shows here, after a fashion, that the influence of the Teton Range on their environment goes beyond that of a wonderful static backdrop. It feeds the rivers, which in turn bring new life and removes the old from the forests of Wyoming. More than a beautiful portrait of an awe-inspiring panorama, this piece is a testament to the interconnectedness of nature.

meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
