Book Description :
From reviews of the first edition: "Richly illustrated . . . this handsome volume presents the rugged beauty and rowdy spirit of life on the frontier, as captured by two master painters." —Art Gallery International ". . . large color plates beautifully reproduce dashing, romantic scenes of frontier life created by two of the West's foremost portrayers." —American West "The many devotees of Remington and Russell and of Western art in general will want to add this handsome volume to their collection." —Arizona Highways "... the University of Texas Press, as one would expect, has produced a beautiful book ...." —Montana Since its original publication in 1982, Remington and Russell has become an essential introduction to the work of these artists, and this revision substantially enhances the book's strengths. Every painting in the Sid Richardson Collection has been rephotographed for this edition, including one Russell and five Remington paintings not included previously. Numerous black-and-white illustrations have also been added to give insight into the evolution of the paintings. Brian Dippie has considerably amplified his commentaries on each painting with new information. His revised introduction places Remington and Russell in the historical and cultural contexts of their time and draws intriguing comparisons between the two artists.
