About This Item

remingtonadashforthetimber

This is one of a series of travel bugs made to recognize paintings seen, and admired by the bug owner. A digital copy of the painting was downloaded from the internet. It was reduced in size, and proportions cropped to accommodate the laminating materials available to the owner. Regrettably these processes diminish the efforts of the artist. One truly must see the originals in person to fully appreciate the work. The text below is a mixture of my own observations and material gleaned from the internet (mostly Wikipedia and Web Gallery).

Frederic Sackrider Remington (1861 –1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating on the last quarter of the 19th century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry. Remington made a number of trips to the American Southwest, principally to cover the U.S. Cavalry and its pursuit of the Apaches. Dash for the Timber launched his career as a major painter.

After Norman Rockwell, this is the second artist whose work I could recognize on sight at a very young age. He is without peer in depicting horses in motion. Unfortunately the pursuing Apaches in the painting were cropped from this photograph. This very large painting hangs in the lobby of the Amon Carter Museum, Ft. Worth, TX.
