Additional Information

Not since Thomas Moran in the 1800s has an artist been as passionately linked to the Grand Canyon as Curt Walters. The painter, who lives in nearby Sedona, Arizona, was only 19 years old when he saw the canyon for the first time. It was love at first sight, he jokes. Since then he has devoted much of his career to capturing the national park in all its majesty and magnificence. He also is not afraid to show the park as it is, especially when forest fires in Northern Arizona blow smoke into the canyon and limit visibility. Walters is an outspoken defender of the park and actively participates in making it better by donating sales and paintings to the Grand Canyon Foundation, which aims to protect the park for future generations.

In this work, showing the Kaibab Trail, Walters paints a view from one of the most scenic trails down into the canyon. The Grand Canyon has several famous trails, including Bright Angel Trail and South Kaibab Trail originating from the South Rim, and North Kaibab starting on the North Rim. The trails are named after the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians, who live in Northern Arizona. Native American lands share the boundaries on three sides of the Grand Canyon and many locations in the canyon are considered sacred to several of the different tribes.
