This study explored how artists, photographers, and writers have portrayed the area within and surrounding Rocky Mountain National Park since Albert Bierstadt and William Henry Jackson began recording images in the late nineteenth century. An inventory and analysis of the images and words, and their reception, formed the basis for interpretation and management of park resources.
