More about The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak
The Rocky Mountains, Lander’s Peak was based on sketches made by Albert Bierstadt during his travels with the Honey Road Survey Party in 1859.  Bierstadt named the mountain landscape after General Frederick W. Lander, the leader of the expedition.  The painting shows a Native American encampment against the background of Lander’s Peak in the Wyoming Range of the Rocky Mountains.  It was purchased in 1865 for $25,000 by a British railway entrepreneur named James McHenry.  The painting is now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
