The Grand Frontier: Remington and Russell in the Amon Carter Museum

Provides a wonderful selection of favorite works by these two beloved artists of the American West. From the spectacular front cover-a detail from the heart of Frederic Remington’s masterpiece, A DASH FOR THE TIMBER (1889)- to the back cover, a mesmerizing detail from Charles M. Russell’s SMOKE OF A .45 (1908), the works in this book capture the heart of the "Old West." Amon Carter Sr. loved this art so much he made it the focus of collection.
