Frederic Remington Art Museum Collectionby Brian W. Dippie, Frederic Remington, Frederic Remington Art Museum, Frederic Remington Art Museum
Few American artists are as enduringly popular as Frederic Remington (1861-1909). His bronzes and paintings of the American West have become iconic images, shaping the way Americans view the history of the West. This generously illustrated volume is the first to examine the exceptional collection of his works housed at the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York.
In his richly detailed portrait of the artist, Western art scholar Brian W. Dippie traces Remington's life and artistic development. Drawing extensively on Remington's letters, diaries, and other archival materials, Dippie explores some 100 of the most important works in the collection in the context of prevailing social, cultural, and political attitudesincluding the ethnic and racial stereotypes for which Remington's work is sometimes criticized today. An important addition to the Remington literature, this handsome volume highlights Remington's impressive range and underscores his achievements as an illustrator, sculptor, and painter.
