Yellowstone National Park is inextricably tied to the art that celebrates it. The paintings of Thomas Moran from Artist’s Point captured the sublime experience of such a geological wonder and spurred the nation to create the first national park. In honor of Yellowstone’s 150th anniversary, we invite artists to explore grandeur and quiet beauty of this national treasure. Collectors can experience the rich connection to the park and its marvels.
These paintings were painted during a trip to Yellowstone the week before the flood of 2022. My base was Mammoth Hot Springs, and I found the surrounding landscape fascinating. The painting conditions were perfect, with clear skies and moderate temperatures. I left days before the flooding began.
