    At his death, Walter Aegerter left a large collection of hundreds of images documenting life in this small, German Swiss settlement between the years 1890 and 1930. The glass plate negatives survive to this day, and many photographs are housed at the West Virginia State Archives in Charleston and the West Virginia and Regional History Collection at West Virginia University.

  • Artist : Albert Bierstadt (German , 1830 - 1902) 
    Title : A Storm in the Rocky Mountains, Mt. Rosalie
    Date : 1866
    Medium : oil on canvas
    Dimensions : 210.8 × 361.3 cm (83 × 142.2 in.)
    Inscriptions : Signed lower right: "ABierstadt /N.Y. 1866"
    Current location : Brooklyn Museum , New York City , United States.

    Albert Bierstadt (January 7, 1830 - February 18, 1902) was an German-American painter best known for his lavish, sweeping landscapes of the American West. To paint the scenes, Bierstadt joined several journeys of the Westward Expansion. Though not the first artist to record these sites, Bierstadt was the foremost painter of these scenes for the remainder of the 19th century.
    Born in Germany, Bierstadt was brought to the United States at the age of one by his parents. He later returned to study painting for several years in Düsseldorf. He became part of the Hudson River School in New York, an informal group of like-minded painters who started painting along this scenic river. Their style was based on carefully detailed paintings with romantic, almost glowing lighting, sometimes called luminism. An important interpreter of the western landscape, Bierstadt, along with Thomas Moran, is also grouped with the Rocky Mountain School.

    Bierstadt was born in Solingen, Germany. The following year, in 1831, his family moved to New Bedford, Massachusetts. At an early age Bierstadt developed a taste for art and made clever crayon sketches in his youth. In 1851, he began to paint in oils.
    He returned to Germany in 1853 and studied painting for several years in Düsseldorf with members of its informal school of painting. After returning to New Bedford in 1857, he taught drawing and painting briefly, before devoting himself full-time to painting.
    In 1858 he exhibited a large painting of a Swiss landscape at the National Academy of Design, which gained him positive critical reception and honorary mem...(Continuar Lendo)
