Summary A new view of Yosemite's visual history is represented by presenting two hundred works of art together with essays that explore the rich intersections between art and nature in this incomparable Sierra Nevada wilderness. Integrating the work of Native peoples, it provides the first inclusive view of the artists who helped create an icon of the American wilderness by featuring painting, photography, basketry, and other artworks from both well-known and little-studied artists from the nineteenth century to the present, such as, John Muir, Eadweard J. Muybridge, Thomas Ayres, Albert Bierstadt, William Bradford, Carrie Bethel, Anne Brigman, Thomas Hill, William Henry Jackson, Ansel Adams, Gregory Kondos, Georgia O'Keefe, Lucy Telles, Wayne Thiebaud, Charles Weed, Carleton E. Watkins, Marguerite Thompson and William Zorach, and more.
