Frederic Remington (October 4, 1861 - December 26, 1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the American West. He was born in Canton, New York to Seth Pierrepoint Remington and Clarissa Bascom Sack rider. One of his great grandfathers, Samuel Bascom, was a saddle maker by trade. Frederic Remington was related by family bloodlines to Indian portrait artist George Catlin and cowboy sculptor Earl W. Bascom. He spent a childhood hunting and riding, but began to make drawings and sketches of imaginative figures. The family later moved to Ogdensburg, New York. He attended the art school at Yale University, finding that football and boxing were more interesting than art, and then returned home when his father died to assume some clerical work in Albany, New York. He soon made his first excursion west and became a businessman in Kansas City. He married Eva Caten in 1884 and studied at the Art Students League of New York. He soon began to submit illustrations, sketches, and other works for publication with the western theme. Much of his early work appeared in Collier's and Harper's. Although he is world-famous for his many depictions of life in the American West, Remington only visited the region briefly several months at a time. He was in time to capture images of the western United States before the area was considered closed by virtue of the subduing of the wilder elements and the inroads of civilization that ended the frontier lifestyle.
