Career:

Bierstadt  was popular for  his huge  landscapes of the American West. When he returned  to the United States, he organized an exhibition in New Bedford of 150 paintings which included paintings of  the major artists of his day. His painting The Portico of Octavia Rome was bought by the independent libraries in the United States, Boston Athenæum which turned out to be  a major phase of his career.
