Additional Information

Description

American icon Winslow Homer, famous ocean painter, joins Frederic Remington, legendary cowboy artist, for Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, the first exhibition to explore the unexpected resonances and moments of convergence between the themes, artistic sensibilities, and technical processes of these two artists.

Homer and Remington were touted by turn-of-the-century critics as artists whose work reinforced an American identity rooted in action, independence, and communion with the outdoors. While both artists actively cultivated this reputation, the correlation between these two icons has never been considered in depth due to the perceived differences in their subject matter.
