REMINGTON, Frederic (1861-1909)
New York: R. H. Russell, 1901. Chromolithographed plate, mounted onto original brown paper card.
One of Remington's portraits of Wild West types, the Arizona Comboy is a tough and able, completely at ease in the saddle
In 1901 R.H. Russell published a dramatic portfolio of prints from eight vivid pastels that were included in Remington's first one-man gallery exhibition in December of that same year. This portfolio, complete with text and an introduction by Owen Wister, featured four Indian subjects and four cowboy/military subjects and became collectively known as "A Bunch of Buckskins". Today, this Buckskin set is arguably the most highly prized of Remington prints among collectors.
