While he was an unabashed supporter of the U.S. Army, even terming the Sand Creek massacre justifiable, Remington, toward the end of his brief life, did develop sympathy for the plight of Native Americans and the loss of their lands and heritage. He wrote a couple of novels and a Broadway play dealing with the story of a half-Indian, half-white protagonist and his difficulty finding a place in the world dominated by white men. While Remington had often portrayed Native Americans as savages and enemies of civilization and made conspicuously racist statements, he nonetheless remained ambivalent about efforts to make...

Frank Duveneck (1848-1919) was one of the earliest significant American proponents of the artistic movement called Realism. Drawn to this new style as it was emerging there, he studied in Munich, Germany in the 1870s and 1880s where he adapted the chiaroscuro and character study of painters like Frans Hals into his own style.

After a period in Italy during which his work became sunnier in both palette and mood, he returned to the U.S. where...

Since it was unusual for Remington to produce works devoid of action or narrative, this was probably a watercolor sketch designed to create a record of the uniform of cavalry officers at the time of the Mexican War (1846-1848), a sort of military fashion illustration. However, while he did produce illustrations for a book on military uniforms, there is no evidence that this piece was ever used as an illustration for it or any other works. It does demonstrate his continuing fascination with the military and the cavalry in particular, a near obsession probably stemming from his fathers service with...

After the carefully delineated pastures populated with fauns and nymphs typical of Baroque and Academic painting, critics were taken aback by the loose brushwork and lack of narrative typical of the Barbizon School newly emerging in France in the early 19th century. Considered the father of the French Barbizon School of landscape painting, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot was born in Paris to the owners of a prosperous millinery shop. Though bourgeois, his family supported his artistic ambitions and paid for him to visit Italy to study the masters. In an age when paintings were typically based on either history or religion, Corot...
