Thomas Moran

was one of the major landscape painters of his day, and painted some of America's most prominent natural treasures, including the Rocky Mountains, the Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone. He also arranged for the first government-sponsored survey of Yellowstone, and his images "were later reported to have played a decisive role in the debate that led to the establishment of Yellowstone as the first national park in March 1872." (National Gallery of Art)
