Thomas Moran's name became synonymous with Yellowstone. He accompanied a governmental expedition into the Yellowstone region in 1871, and his sketches of the many wonders helped to convince Congress to make Yellowstone America's first national park. Moran returned to Yellowstone and painted a view of the pass named Golden Gate. Golden Gate, Yellowstone National Park is one of many popular artworks that can be seen in the Whitney Gallery of Western Art. Image measures 31 1/2" x 23 1/2".
