Dramatic Moments: Frederic Remington’s Early Engravings
January 16 @ 10:00 am - March 30 @ 4:00 pm
This exhibit presents an outstanding collection of large-size, vintage Harper’s Weekly engravings by Frederic Remington. These are the images that launched Remington’s illustration career, and that provided the platform from which he evolved into one of the West’s most famous fine art painters. The images not only document Remington’s rise to prominence and wealth, but also chronicle the convulsive events in the closing decades of the western frontier era. Furthermore, Remington’s consummate skill in rendering the horse in motion is prominently demonstrated in these engravings. This extensive body of Frederic Remington’s early art forms is a testament to his emergent skill and creative imagination, traits which quickly elevated him above and beyond his contemporaries.
