Frederic Remington’s watercolor and oil paintings of Cowboys, Native Americans, horse wranglers, and U.S. cavalry are major contributors to our culturally imagined idea of the West. In fact, no other painter captured this romanticized version of the American West from the late nineteenth century as well as Frederic Remington. His career began as an art correspondent for widely circulating periodicals, including Harper’s Weekly. He eventually earned commissions for his illustrated books, original paintings, and bronze busts. While his subject matter and style are noticeably different from most of his contemporaries, Remington is often listed as one of the best illustrators of his era, alongside Howard Pyle, Arthur Rackham, William Heath Robinson, and many others. He is also one of the first painters to capture the true gait of horses, a signature aspect of his work. This collector’s edition describes Remington’s incredible career with impressive insight into his artistic ability and style. It contains numerous examples of Remington’s work.

This collector’s edition is in fine condition. In the original brown leather, finely gilt stamped. Illustrated pastedown to front board. Raised bands. Text block fine. Gilt edges. Silk bookmark sewn in. Remington’s handsome illustrations occupy most of the text. They are wonderfully presented on gloss paper.

A fine collector’s copy showcasing the work of Frederic Remington.
