Fredric Remington’s art defined the iconic wild west and his vision is still ingrained in how we view that period in history today.
His painting and sculpture portrays the drama and conflict of settling the west & his characters are the definitive members of the western battles, Native Americans, cowboys and soldiers.
Interestingly enough, Frederic was born in New York and spend much of his life on the East Coast. Although he enjoyed the West and visited there to find inspiration for his work, he remained an East Coast man at heart.
A Fulfilled Life
Frederic passed away at the young age of 48, although in his short life he was a prolific artist and the proud creator of more than 3,000 drawings & paintings, 22 bronze sculptures, 2 novels and over 100 magazine articles & stories. His artwork is not focused on horses themselves, however they are an integral part of his subjects & beautifully rendered.
