Frederic Remington and Charles Russell are introduced here as the grandfathers of contemporary Western art.
Their lives and examples of their work lead into an impressive assemblage of stunning sculptures and paintings by modern artists who have followed and honored the masters’ basic tenets. Profiles of scores of these artists are offered along with their dramatic and colorful compositions in bronze and oils that will please the admirers of the American West as we believe it to have been or as we see it at work today. This large coffee table book is informative as well as colorful, and I recommend it to serious art collectors. A treasure indeed.
