Remington, Frederic


Remington, Frederic (1861-1909), a native of Canton, N.Y., was a noted sculptor, painter and illustrator of the American West. He studied art at Yale and went to the West, where he worked and drew illustrations for Harper’s and other magazines. He lived and worked for many years in New Rochelle, gaining an international reputation for his paintings and sculptures. He also wrote several books on the West. He moved in 1909 to a house he built off Barry Avenue, probably to be closer to lifelong friend, A. Barton Hepburn, who also came from Canton. He died six months later of appendicitis.
