Yellowstone in Harper’s Weekly. This particular work was done in his Chicago studio, and it is disputed whether or not he was present on that particular expedition to Yellowstone.

As an artist, Graham was not a romantic and did not like artistically glorified views of nature’s grandeur, but preferred views of men taming the west. He was an adventurer as well as an artist.
