The Merced River covers over 140 miles of terrain in central California, and is well-known due to the part of its course that runs through Yosemite National Park. A popular destination for boating, fishing, and whitewater rafting, the Merced’s beautiful surroundings make it a prime candidate for artistic representation.
The artwork found here is mostly of the black and white variety, giving it a unique feel that fits well in sharp, modern environments. There are also Merced River prints of the painting “Half Dome, Yosemite Valley” by Albert Bierstadt, which contains a variety of rich and vibrant hues. This piece could be used in any area with deep, warm colors, and would also fit nicely in a modern setting with less colorful surroundings.
