A variety of artwork by artist Frederic Remington.
Remington Selections shows the variety of medium technique and subject in the museum's holdings. The exhibit spans the artist's career from his early My Ranch, a watercolor from 1883 to some of his last great nocturnes and illustrative landscape paintings, such as Pete's Shanty.
The Broncho Buster, considered to be Remington's most successful and recognizable sculpture, was his first undertaking in modeling and took a year to produce.
The Broncho Buster
This sculpture is one of 17 casts made. Ours is #15; the first 2 casts were not numbered. This group of riders was cast in five pieces; four horse and rider sets attached to the separately cast base.
Coming Through the Rye
The Remingtons bought this home in 1890 and remained in the house until 1909. They named the house, which was located in New Rochelle, "Endion," an Ojibawa term for "The place where I live."
Remington Selections was curated by director Laura A. Foster of the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, NY.
