Born in the Netherlands, Alexander Francois Loemans created striking, sweeping vistas of the northern United States and Canada. The majority of his landscapes were created along the Hudson River, in the Sierra Mountains, or at St. Anthony Falls on the Minnesota River. Featuring towering mountains, thundering waterfalls, and stormy skies, Loemans paintings reveal a grand, dramatic vision akin to that of Albert Bierstadt and Hermann Herzog. "Western Vista" by Alexander F. Loemans is a perfect example of why scenes of Hudson River and the American West from the 1860's to the 1890's was considered the "American school." of painting. As witnessed in this wonderful painting, these men were more than just painters, they were adventurers.
