Buffalo Runners Big Horn Basin, 1909: Canvas Replica Painting: Grande
By artist Frederic Remington (1861-1909), in a Private Collection
The light and shadow of bold paint strokes direct the warm colors of the summer sun in this singularly mesmerizing work that celebrates a line of racing riders across the open range. Remington's stated goal was the viewer feel, not simply see, the running horses. In this, another highly-regarded work of American Impressionism, Remington gives his country another rich gift as both an artist and a historian. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with a beaded inner border and an antiqued ebony finish.

   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.
