According to the Denver Art Museum’s web site, the sixty works of art in this exhibition—co-organized with the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Portland Museum of Art, Maine—reveal how Homer and Remington each captured “the quintessential American spirit through works of art at the turn of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, an era of growing industrialization and notions of the closing of the American western frontier. Winslow Homer (1836-1910), who was considered the most original painter of his time, prospered by creating masterful depictions of the Eastern Seaboard, while Frederic Remington (1861-1909) became famous for his iconic representations of the American West. The work of these two self-taught artists continues to be celebrated as independent, innovative, and homegrown.” On view March 15 – June 7, 2020.
