Journey of Hope and Prosperity
by Mian Situ

By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Christian missionaries had been in China for several hundred years, which meant that many Chinese immigrants had encountered Christianity before they ever set foot on American soil. Women and children were known as “easy believers” by missionaries and two children devote their attention to the preacher in this image while other Chinese, particularly men, gather above decks to talk and smoke among themselves.

Golden Spike Ceremony
by Mian Situ

With the Union asunder and in the midst of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln recognized that the building of the First Transcontinental Railroad was not a side project to be put aside and left dependent upon the outcome of the war. It was a task that defined the full potential of a unified nation. It would be started despite the war and stand as the restored Union’s first great accomplishment after the war.

A nation set to burst forth on the world was foreshadowed that day. Mian Situ’s Golden Spike Ceremony places us in the middle of that historic moment on May 10, 1869 at Promontory Summit in what was known then as Utah Territory. The railroads, which represented the day’s apex of progress and technology, joined the nation.The diverse melting pot of peoples that would make the United States so great conceived, financed and literally with their hands, hewed out of the North American soil this vital commercial artery.They gathered around as Leland Stanford, president of the Central Pacific Railroad, drove the final spike that officially joined the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads. A single railroad tie-length apart sat the CP No. 60 “Jupiter” (blue) and the UP No. 119 (red). It is said that during the ceremony itself, the crowd was so thick that photographers could not get close enough to get a clear shot.

The Intruder, Angel’s Camp, California, 1849
by Mian Situ

The California Gold Rush brought fortune seekers from around the world to isolated mining camps around the Sierra Nevadas. Occasionally, the aroma of the next meal would entice some of the local wildlife to visit a forty-niner camp as well. Most would-be miners had never spent an evening in the wilderness before heading to California, so encountering a hungry or angry California Grizzly was a first. The only certainty here is that a tumultuous uproar is about to occur, the outcome of which could fall in anyone’s favor.

This painting is one of three that Situ introduced at the Autry’s 2010 Masters of the American West Show for which he received the Gene Autry Memorial Award. Mian Situ’s epic depictions of California’s “Eastward Expansion” sit side by side with the Westward Expansion works of Moran, Bierstadt and Russell in both their historical importance and artistic greatness.
