FREDERIC REMINGTON

 

 

These are some “lesser” Frederic Remington paintings. It is interesting to see the unfinished ones…

WHITNEY GALLERY AT THE BUFFALO BILL HISTORICAL CENTER

Apologies for the blurry photos recently I got a new camera yesterday so I should be in focus going forward…the lens not only has a cover but inset a little deeper to avoid the numerous scratches my old camera has suffered! Its funny I took a photo of snow and a cloudy sky. A LOT of white and while I previously thought I had four scratches on my lens it was nine!!! My cameras take a beating!!!

Another set of guest descriptions for the artwork above.

 

 

I love this quiet little painting.

This is a replica of Charles M. Russel’s art studio

The frame that surrounds this giant painting is a work of art by itself! The linen on the frame is painted with all of these horses…

 

unfortunately the spotlights are aimed at the interesting characters in the painting ideal for viewing but not photographing! That is Custer below…

 

This is downright painful to look at!!

this was entertaining. The gallery put up a couple of interactive displays. This one has people write their own labels for a particular piece of art, in this case the painting above. I went through and photographed the most interesting responses.

From a distance this looked like a photograph. I’m not overly fond of art that mimics real life. I like to see character in artwork.

this is just a close up and not the entire painting.

My brother has been dreaming of  New Mexico so I included this.

Another close up….I liked the squareness of the horses head

It was raining and windy last time I visited Cody so I headed for the BBHC for a few hours.

detail of the automobiles

As I said before this is a beautiful museum. The next exhibit I will visit will be the firearms.

I  didn’t really like this next painting but part of art is the negative reaction…might be those big teeth on the grizzlies! I didn’t photograph the whole painting just the grizzly detail. Its a big painting!

I loved this little painting.

Of course I love the buffalo!
