Parley, The
The Parley
The influence of Impressionism is fully evident in this 1906 oil painting by Remington. Compared to the careful delineation and finish we see in earlier paintings like Arrival of a Courier and Blandy, this work instead uses broad planes of color, negative space, and atmospheric perspective to create the scene. This was more than likely an early oil version, or oil sketch of a larger work which appeared in the October 20, 1906 issue of Collier's Weekly and is currently on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Like Calling the Moose, it gives us a hint of the direction Remington's painting would have taken had he survived an appendicitis attack in 1909.
