Historical Context:
Mathias Alten, a painter of much wider acclaim than the boundaries of this community, chose to make his home, raise his family, and paint in Grand Rapids for the majority of his life. Today, a century after Alten began capturing scenes of Grand Rapids, the city is still recognizable in his work. The sampling of Grand Rapids scenes he offers serves as a historical record for a city that continues to redefine itself.
