  • Painting Description

    "Cliffs of the Upper Colorado River, Wyoming Territory" is a notable 19th-century landscape painting by the British-born American artist Thomas Moran. Created in 1882, the artwork is a testament to Moran's skill in capturing the grandeur and beauty of the American West, which he frequently explored and depicted in his works. The painting is a part of Moran's larger body of work that significantly contributed to the perception of the West in the American imagination and played a role in the establishment of the national park system.

    The painting measures 20 1/4 x 30 inches (51.4 x 76.2 cm) and is executed in oil on canvas. It showcases Moran's mastery of light and color, as well as his ability to convey the vastness and ruggedness of the western landscape. The scene depicted in "Cliffs of the Upper Colorado River, Wyoming Territory" is characterized by towering cliffs, likely inspired by Moran's trips along the Green River and through the Wyoming territory, which provided him with ample inspiration for his works.

    Moran's travels were often sponsored by railroad companies and other commercial interests who sought to use his art to promote the West as a tourist destination and to encourage economic development. His paintings, including "Cliffs of the Upper Colorado River, Wyoming Territory," were instrumental in shaping the public's perception of the West as a land of untouched wilderness and sublime beauty.

    The painting is significant not only for its aesthetic qualities but also for its historical and cultural impact. It reflects the era's fascination with the American frontier and the emerging conservation movement that sought to preserve the nation's natural wonders. Thomas Moran's works, with their emphasis on the dramatic and picturesque, helped to inspire the creation of the first national parks and left a lasting legacy on American art and environmental policy.

    "Cliffs of the Upper Colorado River, Wyoming Territory" is held in a private collection, and it continues to be a subject of study for art historians and enthusiasts of American Western art. Its representation of the Western landscape exemplifies the themes of exploration, conservation, and the American sublime that are central to Moran's oeuvre.
