Killing a Cattle Thief
Killing a Cattle Thief
Remington produced a number of paintings whose subject was the hunting of grizzly bears. This particular work was originally featured in the September 7, 1901 issue of Collier's Weekly and later included in Remington's book, Done in the Open. In the book, it was re-titled At Last and accompanied by a poem by Owen Wister delineating a 3-year pursuit of the grizzly in question which has been ravaging cattle herds in the region. The way the sagebrush is suggested rather than delineated indicates Remington's growing debt to Impressionism and the new directions his work was beginning to take.
