"N.A. (see no. 23.) The qualities which strike us in Mr. Bierstadt are, first, a great audacity justified by perfect ability to accomplish all he intends. He is not a mere copyist of nature, but an artist having definite artistic intentions, and carrying them out with care and resolution. He is always trying for luminous gradations and useful oppositions, and reaches what he tries for. - London Saturday Review. " Storm on Laramie Peak. One of the most interesting of the artist's late works . . . the whole picture is faithful to nature in one of her most sublime aspects, and constantly reveals new elements of truth and beauty to one who studies it carefully. - Louisville courier-journal."
