Historical Context
Mathias Alten's 'Grand Rapids' is an exhibition of scenes painted by Mathias Alten over the span of his near fifty-year career. These works are a visual study of this city through the eyes of an artist who loved it. Alten's view of Grand Rapids captured the expansion and development of a city through images including its downtown streets, Reeds Lake, and Alten's own backyard.
View from within a wooded area. A river runs from the left side of the picture toward the middle where it is then hidden by trees and brush.
Gift of George H. and Barbara Gordon
