Calling the Moose
Having achieved notable success and the financial security that attended it, in 1899 Remington bought a small island on the St. Lawrence River near Ogdensburg, New York in order to build a summer home. He remodeled a small cottage on the island, naming it Ingleneuk, and spent time there painting, writing, and enjoying favorite sports like canoeing, fishing, and swimming. By this time, he had also become friendly with leading American Impressionist Childe Hassam and was searching for new directions in his own art. Aware that critics sometimes faulted his handling of color, he decided to start his new approach with some nocturnes, paintings set in the early evening when color values alter. The focus in these works was no longer on narrative and detail, but instead used freely applied color to create feeling
and mood.
