Recognized among of the most important names in Western Art, Frederic Remington left an indelible mark on the popular imagination. His realistic yet highly dramatic depictions of cowboys, ranchers, end the like would shape the aesthetics and persona of the inhabitants of the Western Frontier in the minds of millions for generations to come. Much of that influence was due not only to the artist’s capability of understanding his own time and the opportunities it provided but also to his expert handling of color and composition, which enhanced the emotional charge of his paintings, bringing the observer into that world of adventure, excitement, and, not rarely, humor.
In this 1906 oil on canvas, produced near the end of his tragically short life, Remington showcases his talent for employing color to elicit a strong emotional response from the painting. Now in possession of private collectors, the relatively small piece shows us a Remington clearly approaching a more late Impressionist style, especially in what concerns the open composition, the accurate depiction of lighting effects, the choice of a relatively mundane subject matter, since the rider painted here is not really doing anything special, and the strong illusion of movement. Even though Remington would have never placed himself among the Impressionists, and neither would any art critic of his time, it is impossible to deny that his style became more and more influenced by Impressionism as his career went on.
The piece offered here depicts, then, a lonely cowpoke riding his mustang through the bush and thorns of the Wild West. From the observer’s viewpoint, the rider and his horse stand against the backdrop of a burning sunset, which has the effect of creating an incredibly hot scene, but also of obscuring the rider’s features, so that one couldn’t even say whether he is young or old. His clothes and tack suggest simplicity, and his body language indicates that he is not fulfilling some cattle driving task, but instead leisurely riding after a long day of work. Maybe to emphasize the yellow and orange of the sunset, Remington has added a ragged stripe of green to the top of the sky, enhancing the contrast created by the warm colors. While most of Remington’s paintings focus on the heroism of the ranchers, here, he casts his attention to the simplicity of their living.
