"See no. 30. The qualities which strike us in Mr. Bierstadt are, first, a great audicity justified by perfect ability to accomplish all he intends. He is not a mere copyist by 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 for what he tries for. - London Saturday Review. " The Wahsatch Mountains. The realistic treatment of the foreground, the excellent atmospheric quality and fine effect of distance, the bright, luminous sky, and the mountain bluff enveloped in the clouds, with the gleam of light on the water in the middle distance, all contribute to make this one of the most pleasing of Mr. Bierstadt's recent pictures."
