The Western Art of Frederic Remington

Opening the Wild West of North America

Frederic Remington (October 4, 1861 - December 26, 1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the American West. He was born in Canton, New York to Seth Pierrepont Remington and Clarissa Bascom Sackrider. One of his great grandfathers, Samuel Bascom, was a saddle maker by trade. Frederic Remington was related by family bloodlines to Indian portrait artist George Catlin and cowboy sculptor Earl W. Bascom.
He attended the art school at Yale University, but returned home when his father died to assume some clerical work in Albany, New York. Soon after he made his first excursion west and became a businessman in Kansas City. Remington married Eva Caten in 1884 and studied at the Art Students League of New York. He soon began to submit illustrations, sketches, and other works for publication with the western theme. Much of his early work appeared in Collier's and Harper's. ....continued on Frederic Remington page 2
