Frederic Remington (1861-1909)
Remington was born in Canton, New York. He briefly attended the Yale School of Art and the Art Students League of New York before heeding the call to "Go West." His dynamic representations of cowboys and cavalrymen, bronco busters and braves created a mythic image of the American West. Over the course of his career, he produced more than three thousand drawings and paintings, twenty-two bronze sculptures, a novel, a Broadway play, and over one hundred articles and stories.

1909 Oil on canvas 31" x 28"

This little known painting, a romantic depiction of a solitary Indian playing a flute in the moonlight, is a departure from Remington's usual dramatic and sometimes tragic portrayal of Indians as warriors or hunters.

This nocturne, with its thinly painted blue tones of quiet, night light is not sentimental or fraught with emotion, but dignified, plainly elegant in contrast with the mysterious gloom of the forest and the cold darkness masterfully painted in his other night scenes like the Luckless Hunter or Scare in A Pack Train. It is without question that Remington was the master of the nocturne. He knew how the light of the moon and stars is diffused and how it magically envelopes the landscape. He developed a firmer grasp of the whole problem of illumination in the nocturnes - veracious and beautiful, and very original. With his fusion of substance and technique, he lyrically portrayed the dream of the past. sites/?iy=313
