19th Century Watercolour Scenes of Jackson Hole, Wyoming by George Beard

$5,500

About

This 19th century work on paper depicts three representations from Jackson Hole, Wyoming: The mountainous view of Lower end Jackson Lake, a golden sky above the view of upper end Jackson Lake and a small camp on the banks of Shoshone River. Beard held a reverence for this landscape, wanting to ensure its beauty and awe was captured. The presentation of this work is evident of that; it resembles a page from a photo book, the three separate dog-eared images arranged together on one page. The painting is signed "G. Beard, 1889" and sized 25 x 26.5 inches framed. George Beard was born in Cheshire, England 1855, immigrating to Coalville, Utah in 1869 with his family. A man with a natural artistic talent, it was his affinity with his adopted mountainous landscape that Beard sought to express in his many photographs and paintings of the outdoors. In 1870, Beard met and painting painting with C. C. A. Christensen, as well as acquiring skill as a photographer under the guidance of Pioneer photographer Charles R. Savage. It is immediately evident in viewing his photographs that Beard had an eye for composition and researched the effects of light on the natural landscape, which he was able reproduce in the composition elements of his paintings. His strongest artistic inspiration for his landscape paintings was Thomas Moran and the Hudson River school, but the grandeur of his art is of the Rocky Mountain school. Beard made many extensive excursions into the surrounding Uinta Mountains of Utah and the Yellowstone regions of Wyoming and Montana, painting and photographing dramatic mountain panoramas throughout a very productive lifetime.
