The following is information I found on this subject:
Through his painted evocations of breathtaking scenery in the American West, Thomas Moran played a decisive role in the establishment by Congress of the National Park System. At the age of 34, Moran traveled to Yellowstone in 1871 at the invitation of the Northern Pacific Railroad. The paintings that resulted from that trip set the tone for the remainder of his career, according to Eleanor Harvey, DMA Curator of American Art. "His watercolors, engravings, etchings, and oil paintings would grace the pages of guidebooks published by the railroads to promote tourism to the American West.
