Although they were contemporaries, Frederic Remington (1861–1909) and Charles M. Russell (1864–1926) could hardly have been more different. This focused exhibition of paintings and sculptures selected from the Carter’s extensive collection offers visitors an opportunity to gain insight into dissimilarities between the two artists. Remington and Russell followed their own unique paths to become the greatest practitioners of the art of the American West. Yet, regardless of their differences, they not only manifested the Western Myth, they were largely responsible for creating it.
