If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away---Henry David Thoreau

Frederic Remington: Illustrator of the Old West

Frederic Remington went to art school at Yale University but was more interested in football and boxing than art. A trip to Montana at 19 inspired him with images of the Old West. Remington became noticed as an illustrator after he worked for Harper's Weekly starting in 1886. Along with Charles Russell, Remington is recognized as an artist of the Old West.
