Best Material for the Artist in the World – Albert Bierstadt: A Biography in Poems by Kenneth Chamlee
Stephen F. Austin University Press, March 2023
This poetic biography tracks the life and career of landscape artist Albert Bierstadt, whose 19th-century representations of the American West earned him wealth and international acclaim. These narrative, lyric, and ekphrastic poems touch the momentum of the developing west, the devastation of native tribes and the great buffalo herds, as well as the resiliency of Bierstadt’s art in times of environmental awareness and expansionist reappraisal.
