FREDERIC REMINGTON

(1861-1909). American painter of the American West.

Self portrait within an Illustrated Autograph Letter Signed, New Rochelle, May 2.

Remington writes an upbeat letter about painting in the summer to American artist Harper Pennington. "Don't run away to Westport before you send me the address for this summer of that bully young man model of yours because I want to use him this summer. Am plugging away. Just made a little mud look a little like a horse. Great fun. Mrs. Remington sends regards - Remember me also to Redwood if you see him. Yours faithfully, Frederic Remington." After his humorous reference to his own horse sculptures, the artist draws a sketch of himself sitting before a blank canvas, with brush and palette, painting a mounted cowboy. It's interesting to note that Harper Pennington was a pupil of Whistler. Condition: Margin folds evident with slight soiling and uneven spotting to the paper, corner mounting traces on verso.

The illustrated letter measures 7 x 8.8 inches and floats on a dark gray mat overlaid with a white mat, framed in black satin finished wood, matted and framed in museum quality materials, framed in 5/8/inch black satin wood. Frame measures 14 ½ x 16 ½ inches. Fine art content to a fellow artist in addition to the sketch of himself at work. www.schulsonautographs.com.
