Scenery in the Tetons Albert Bierstadt stamp

USA 2016, "Scenery in the Grand Tetons".
The stamp was issued in the series "National Park Service’s Centennial".

Detail of an artwork by Albert Bierstadt (1830–1902), currently held at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Vermont.

The National Park website reads:

"Scenery in the Grand Tetons". Perhaps the oddest thing to report about this painting is that is almost certainly not a real "place." There's no record of Bierstadt traveling to the Tetons. In 1881, years after he completed this painting, he traveled to Yellowstone National Park, which is very near the Tetons. One can hope he glimpsed the Tetons from afar, but he certainly was not there to paint the scene. Although probably not the Tetons, it is very similar to some of his workin the California high country. Scenery in the Grand Tetons is most likely a conjectural scene from his extensive travels in the Sierra. Unlike many artists, Bierstadt was very successful in his lifetime and knew how to sell his art...and a title that captured the imagination about the wonders found in the West was a great sales pitch.
