Frederic Remington was an American painter, illustrator, and sculptor who specialized in the realistic portrayal of the Wild West. From cowboys and Native Americans, to U.S. Cavalry, officers of the law, emigrant settlers, Frederic Remington presented a window for the rest of the world into the beautiful, calamitous, unpredictable, and dangerous nature of Western America during the last quarter of the 19th century.

His style was naturalistic, sometimes impressionistic and he focused on the people and animals of the West, portraying men almost exclusively. He is known for being one of the first American artists to illustrate the true gait of the horse in motion and the galloping horse became Remington's signature subject, which was copied and interpreted by many subsequent Western artists.

Harper's Weekly:  Harper's Magazine was a weekly magazine which debuted in June of 1850.  Although the earliest issues consisted largely of material that had already been published in England, the magazine soon began to print the work of American artists and writers - among them Horatio Alger, Stephen A. Douglas, Theodore Dreiser, Horace Greeley, Winslow Homer, Jack London, John Muir, Frederick Remmington, and Mark Twain.
