A Gorge in the Mountains

This painting painted by Sanford Robinson Gifford was painted to show the beautiful view of the valley. The depth perception of the mountains truly bring a romantic scenery. Another key aspect to the romantic painting is the sun. As the light illuminates the valley and the sky it sets a cheery and happy mood. What really makes this art piece special is the horizon line, and how everything is drawn off of it. It brings your attention to the mountains and trees.
