Art in America: Homer and Remington in Context at the Denver Art Museum

Posted by

Born in Canton, New York, Remington developed into a celebrated illustrator, painter, and sculptor. He created a new visual lexicon of western scenes from his New York studio, which defined the public’s understanding of the West.

This in-depth study will examine the elements that made Remington’s artworks stand out from the crowd.

Presented by Thomas Brent Smith, curator of Western American Art, director of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art at the Denver Art Museum, and co-curator of “Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington.”
