Violent Motion: Frederic Remington’s Artistry In Bronze
Through Sunday, August 11
Presented by Sid Richardson Museum
"Anybody can paint a horse on four legs, but it takes a real eye to paint them in violent motion." -- Sid Richardson.
This special exhibition pairs rarely seen bronze sculptures by Frederic Remington with his paintings to reveal action in a two-dimensional versus a three-dimensional medium. Mary Burke, Director of the Museum, explains that "Frederic Remington created 22 of the most memorable bronzes of any American sculptor of his time and we are very proud to present nine of them as part of the Museum's 30th anniversary celebration. Remington's influence in shaping the West of the popular imagination cannot be overstated."
Dr. Rick Stewart, one of the nation's leading authorities on Remington, curated the exhibition."Remington used to explain that he had the ability to imply motion by getting the viewer to see the animation in something as continuing," says Rick Stewart. "His sculptures are just in stop-action practically; they defy gravity! The connoisseurship level is as high as you can get with Remington."
The exhibition is presented in two phases:
Phase 1: Nov. 8, 2012 – Feb. 24, 2013
Gallery closed Feb. 25-27 for Phase 2 Installation but Store will remain open.
Phase 2: Feb. 28 – June 2, 2013
