The Last of the Buffalo was Bierstadt’s last great western landscape. It brought to light the imminent extinction of the buffalo, stimulating a governmental plan for protection of this animal. The U.S. Postal Service featured the work as a commemorative stamp issued in 1998. This photogravure (a work made by photographically transferring an image to a metal plate, etching the image on the plate, and then printing from it), copyrighted by the artist in 1891, originated with an 1888 oil painting. The drive to preserve dwindling public lands in the American West in the 1960s reignited interest in Bierstadt’s works.
