Overview

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 attitudes—including 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.

Author Biography: Brian W. Dippie is a highly regarded scholar who has written extensively on the West and Western art. He teaches in the department of history at the University of Victoria in British Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The Frederic Remington Art Museum Collection showcases the holdings of the Ogdensburg, N.Y., institution. Remington (1861-1909) remains an iconic, mythmaking painter and sculptor of the American post-Civil War West, as these 333 illustrations 127 in color, 206 in duotone readily show. Brian W. Dippie, who teaches art history at British Columbia's University of Victoria, offers a clear-eyed look at highlights from Remington's oeuvre, along with excerpts from the artist's letters, diaries and sketchbooks. ( Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Much has been written throughout the 20th century and recently about Remington, the immensely popular artist of the American West. Dippie (history, Univ. of Victoria; West-Fever, LJ 11/1/98), a foremost authority on Western art, devotes his book to work at the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, NY, which was established from Remington's estate by his widow, Eva, and sister-in-law Emma. People familiar only with the artist's images of cowboys and Native Americans will likely be surprised and delighted by his impressionist-inspired landscapes of his home state of New York. Photographs and comparative images enhance the author's discussions of Remington himself and of the individual paintings, drawings, and sculptures. (However, there was occasionally a lack of correlation between the table of contents and the actual text.) Recommended for academic and public libraries.
