Frederic Sackrider Remington (1861 - 1909)
Frederick Remington was born in Canton, New York, in 1861. His formal art instruction was brief. He had one year of study at Yale's school of art, and brief study with American Impressionist J. Alden Weir at the Art Student League in New York.
Most of Remington's time was spent out west, painting for exhibitions, and submitting illustrations for easterners hungry for a glimpse of the American West. Because Remington lived the life he painted, he was an especially interesting figure to the editors who purchased his works. Once he had achieved a comfortable level of financial success, Remington focused his energies on lost-wax sculptures, further exploring the western theme that brought him fame.
He died suddenly of appendicitis at his home in Connecticut at the age of 48.
