May I inquire as to which 19th century artist the three works shown here are by and which software do you require .rar files?

Regards to you.

you can use winrar, get it here

edit: it's free, no need to buy it after the 40 days, if you can live with a popup window

Or try 7-Zip instead as it's open source and does a better job :P - http://www.7-zip.org/

Usually, 7-Zip compresses to 7z format 30-70% better than to zip format. And 7-Zip compresses to zip format 2-10% better than most of other zip compatible programs.

Thank you dhavalmistry, I have now looked him up on Wikipedia and confirmed that indeed he was a 19th century artist but it wasn't hard to tell from the image you posted from the method of execution, compositional arrangement and technique etc that these are 19th century works.

I prefer the Dutch School but my main area of interest lies in the renaissance just my own preference.

Regards to you.

Interestingly enough, we talked about the art movement that Bierstadt was a part of in US History: the Hudson River school of art.

I really recommend looking up some of the painters that were also a part of this art movement as they are almost our "ancestors," as they were the original group of landscape artists ;).
