Of the many writers and artists who have glorified the western experience, few have been more singularly devoted, more prolific, or more enduring than Frederic Sackrider Remington. Through his painting, sculpture, illustrations, and literary works, Remington preserved for posterity the essence of a wild and colorful epoch in American history. To a rare and satisfying degree, he captured the Old West-reconstructing its vividness and the vitality of the men, animals, and the scenes that characterized its picturesque history. Other artists drew and painted cowboys, Indians, and the western scene, and many have done so since, but as one critic noted, "there is no other name which symbolizes our wild Old West as does Frederic Remington’s."
