See Frederic Remington Paintings.
Frederic Remington was born in New York in 1861. After attending Yale University he became a cowboy and began drawing pictures of the Wild West. He submitted some of these to Harper's Monthly but they were only published after they were re-drawn. Remington's work improved and he was eventually employed as a staff artist.
Remington's illustrations in magazines like Harper's Monthly and Scribner's Magazine made him into a household name. In 1888 Theodore Roosevelt asked him to illustrate Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail. He also provided the art work for Longfellow's The Song of Hiawatha (1891), Pony Tracks (1895) and The Way of an Indian (1906).
Colonel Remington was away at war during most of the first four years of his son’s life. After the war, he moved his family to Bloomington, Illinois for a brief time and was appointed editor of the Bloomington Republican, but the family returned to Canton in 1867.Remington was the only child of the marriage, and received constant attention and approval. He was an active child, large and strong for his age, who loved to hunt, swim, ride, and go camping. He was a poor student, though, particularly in math, which did not bode well for his father’s ambitions for his son to attend West Point. He began to make drawings and sketches of soldiers and cowboys at an early age.
For several years Remington also worked as a journalist and provided reports and pictures of major events such as the Indian Wars and the Spanish-American War. Frederic Remington died in 1909.
