Sunset in the Yosemite Valley
By William Bradford

A winter view of the Yosemite Valley with snow on the ground, by an artist best known for his marine and Arctic scenes. Bradford was a namesake and descendant of the New England Puritan leader. He grew up in New Bedford, Massachusetts, like his slightly younger contemporary Albert Bierstadt. Bradford turned to art in middle life, studying under a Dutch marine artist named Albert Van Beest. He exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum, the National Academy, and the Royal Academy. His studio was in New York City throughout most of his career.
