Frederic Remington at the Met

Image: Frederic Remington (American, 1861–1909). On the Southern Plains (detail), 1907. Oil on canvas, 30 1/8 x 51 1/8 in. (76.5 x 129.9 cm).

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Gift of Several Gentlemen, 1911 (11.192). The legacy of the enduringly popular American artist Frederic Remington (1861–1909), chronicler par excellence of the American West, will be presented through some 20 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and illustrated books from the late 1880s until his death. Although he lived and worked on the East Coast, Remington traveled extensively. His insightful depictions of trappers, Native Americans, cavalry, scouts, and, above all, his archetypal cowboys are some of the most iconic images of the Old West.
