Description

By Thayer Tolles and Thomas Brent Smith

Themes of the American West have been enduringly popular, and The American West in Bronze features sixty-five iconic bronzes that display a range of subjects, from portrayals of the noble Indian to rough-and-tumble scenes of rowdy cowboys to tributes to the pioneers who settled the lands west of the Mississippi. Fascinating texts offer a fresh look at the roles that artists played in creating interpretations of the "vanishing West"—whether based on fact, fiction, or something in-between. These artists, including Charles M. Russell and Frederic Remington, embody a range of life experiences and artistic approaches. Some grew up in the West and based their artwork on first-hand experience, while others never set foot west of the Rockies. Four thematic sections—Indians, animals, cowboys, and settlers—are illustrated with new photography and provide a cultural overview to the works presented. Also included are biographies of the artists, each illustrated with a vintage portrait, plus an illustrated chronology of historical and artistic events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The title says it all! I had the honor of visiting the Oval Office while Pres. George W. Bush was on vacation. I saw his Frederick Remington to the right of his desk. It made such an impression, I made it a point to visit the Met and see the Met's Remingtons. This is a great book and means so much more because of my White House visit! This art is about our history! And I am very proud of it!
