Mount Corcoran is a peak in the Sierra Nevada which Bierstadt named for William Wilson Corcoran, founder of the Corcoran Gallery of Art. It was originally entitled “Mountain Lake,” but Bierstadt, eager for Corcoran’s patronage, decided that the painting — and the mountain — deserved a more suitable name. Unsurprisingly, this gesture was met with some skepticism, but Bierstadt shrugged off the controversy, stating that “I am happy to have named one of our highest mountains after him, the first to catch the morning sunlight, the last to say good night.”
