Frederic Sackrider Remington (1861-1909 ) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor and writer who specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating on the last quarter of the 19th century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians and the U. S. Calvary. Today he is one of America’s most famous artists. In a career that spanned less than twenty-five years, Remington produced more than 3,000 drawings and paintings, twenty-two bronze sculptures, a novel, a Broadway play, and over one hundred articles and stories. John Ford’s film “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” was inspired directly by Remington’s work. The “Marlboro Man” in the well-known cigarette ad was one of Remington’s illustrations.
