The Domes of the Yosemite, the largest known painting by Albert Bierstadt (1830–1902), 

will be exhibited at the Morse until early July through a special loan of the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum in Vermont. The 1867 oil-on-canvas, measuring almost 10 by 15 feet, will be installed at the Morse in the winter following conservation in Miami. Charles Hosmer Morse, the industrialist and philanthropist for whom the Morse is named, is a native of St. Johnsbury. The Elizabeth Morse Genius Foundation made a significant contribution toward the Athenaeum’s Domes Project, which includes not only the painting’s conservation but the installation of an HVAC system in the Athenaeum, structural repair to a gallery viewing balcony, and the conservation of frames in the collection. The painting has not been on display outside the Athenaeum since its first installation in 1872.
