The artist Frederic Remington (1861–1909) has long been celebrated for his achievements as an illustrator, a painter, a sculptor, and a writer. This exhibition will present the artist’s legacy 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, and, above all, cowboys are some of the most iconic images of the Old West. The works that will be on view come primarily from The Met’s collection, including several sculptures purchased directly from the artist. Delighting in experimentation, Remington accomplished seemingly impossible technical feats in his bronze statuettes, which were eagerly collected both during and after his lifetime. Find out more about the Frederic Remington exhibition from the Met’s website.
