   Frederick Remington (1861-1909)

American painter, illustrator, and sculptor noted for his realistic portrayals of life in the American West.Remington sought to imbue his subjects - Indians, cowboys, soldiers, and horses - with the traits that he believed marked the spirit of the frontier: rugged individualism, courage, and a yearning to be free from the restrictions and routines of settled life.

Remington was born in Canton, New York, on October 1, 1861, and quickly acquired a lifelong love for outdoor activity and stories of cowboys, Indians, and soldiers. Remington attended Yale, where he became better known for athletic prowess than academic achievement. He worked as a cowboy, sheep rancher, and gold prospector; he also accompanied wagon trains. He constantly sketched the land and people around him and acquired a profound appreciation for his new environment.
