The American West in Bronze, 1850-1925, Hardback Book

The American West in Bronze, 1850-1925 Hardback

Description

Themes of the American West have been enduringly popular, and The American West in Bronze features sixty-five iconic bronzes that display a range of subjects, from portrayals of the noble Indian to rough-and-tumble scenes of rowdy cowboys to tributes to the pioneers who settled the lands west of the Mississippi.

Fascinating texts offer a fresh look at the roles that artists played in creating interpretations of the "vanishing West"-whether based on fact, fiction, or something in-between.

These artists, including Charles M. Russell and Frederic Remington, embody a range of life experiences and artistic approaches.

Some grew up in the West and based their artwork on first-hand experience, while others never set foot west of the Rockies.

Four thematic sections-Indians, animals, cowboys, and settlers-are illustrated with new photography and provide a cultural overview to the works presented. Also included are biographies of the artists, each illustrated with a vintage portrait, plus an illustrated chronology of historical and artistic events.
