As our nation grew and extended westward after the Civil War, landscape paintings became an expression of the limitless, inexhaustible freedom that America offered to its people. American artist, Hamilton Hamilton, was both intrigued and influenced by other monumental landscape artists such as Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt, and he traveled westward to confirm this vision for himself. In the heart of the American West, he found Trout Lake, Colorado. Join Master Docent, Sherry Koopot, for both an exploration and discussion of Hamilton’s Trout Lake, Colorado.
