Frederic Remington, (1861-1909)
Artist and Author
Frederic Remington was born in the North, in Canton, NY, but was drawn to the West soon after attending Yale University. He loved adventure and hard work, and spent much time in the Western territories prospecting, cow punching, hunting, and scouting. “I knew the wild riders and the vacant land were about to vanish forever...” he wrote.
 
Having sketched as a boy, Remington decided to use art to capture the West that he loved. His drawings began to appear regularly in Harper’s Bazaar magazine in 1886. Remington’s early work was detailed and precise, while his later paintings used brush strokes for dramatic effect. The Bronco Buster was the first of twenty-two bronze sculptures he created, beginning in 1895.
 
Remington produced thousands of illustrations over a twenty-three year career that shaped our vision of the old West. As his friend Theodore Roosevelt said, “He has portrayed a most characteristic and yet vanishing type of American life.”
