ART OF THE DAY*: Yosemite Valley, 1866. Albert Bierstadt (American, 1830-1902).
*On this day in 1850, California became a state. 

During the summer of 1863, Albert Bierstadt visited Yosemite Valley in California and made numerous sketches. Back in his New York studio, he used them to produce many majestic paintings, including this view of Half Dome, one of Yosemite’s most distinctive features. Such scenes thrilled East Coast audiences and helped encourage early movements to save America’s natural wonders. In 1864, President Lincoln signed a bill preserving Yosemite as public property. It became a national park in 1890.
