My Favorite Westerns

A Celebration of Western Movies … Pardner!

Frederic Sackrider Remington
(October 4, 1861 – December 26, 1909)

Wikipedia says: “was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating on the last quarter of the 19th-century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U. S. Cavalry.”

Some of My Favorite Remingtons:

    This is incredible. I had only seen Downing the Nigh Leader. Theres such energy in these paintings. You cannot deny their influence on the genre.

    Reblogged this on Tim Neath – Visual Artist and commented:
    These are incredible, I had to share these amazing paintings!

      Amazing stuff. You’re right – and I still see his influence in a lot of modern work. I plan to do a post on the equally famous Western artist, Charles Russel – whose work is often confused with Remingtons.

      And thank you very kindly for the Reblog !

      Yes – thanks Rick. Wish it wuz mine !

  4. Remington is probably Garry’s favorite artist. One of my top 5 too. I used to have some signed prints — artist’s proofs — but I couldn’t afford to frame them properly. Professional framing is insanely expensive, especially if you are dealing with old prints that need museum-quality, acid-free, UV protective framing. So I gave them to a friend who could afford to take care of them. I wish I’d been able to keep them. Thanks for the fabulous pictures.

      Amazing! I’m not sure I would have let them out of my sight. But preserving them was more important. Good for you.
      I had a very good friend who was a framer. Might still be doing that. It’s kind of a Craft – and he was good. Yes, it’s expensive.
      Glad Garry and you like this. I’m going to do something on Russel in the future.
