Remington's work is rich enough to allow every generation to see him anew

Remington's work is rich enough to allow every generation to see him anew. Frederic Remington: The Color of Night helps us to do just that. -Christopher Capozzola, The Art Book. This new and imaginative look at Remington's night pictures secures the artist's place in the history of American art, rather than exclusively in the history of western American art, and promises to attract a large audience from aficionados of the West to those interested in a cultural history of ury America.

Frederic Remington: The Color of Night, organized by Nancy K. Anderson, is a handsome volume. For most of his career, Remington was famous as an illustrator of books and articles about the American West, especially the Great Plains. His interest in the "volatile West" was sparked while he was still a boy; by the time he arrived there as a young man, he was told that there was "no more West.

In the decade preceding his untimely death, Frederic Remington (1861-1909) produced a series of paintings that took as their subject the color of night. This richly illustrated volume is the first to present all of these works--some seventy paintings that secured for Remington the critical acclaim he so coveted. Indeed, these magnificent nocturnes marked an important new direction for the celebrated illustrator, writer, and sculptor of America's vanishing frontier.

In these deeply personal works, Remington explored the technical and aesthetic difficulties of painting darkness. Surprisingly, his images are filled with color and light--moonlight, firelight, candlelight. Focused on the subject the artist had made his own--the American West--these paintings reflect Remington's dramatic reworking of the narrative tradition as well as the spare modernism of his late work.

Frederic Remington: The Color of Night, accompanying the first exhibition devoted to the nocturnes, includes three insightful essays discussing Remington's nocturnes within the literary, historical, aesthetic, and technological context of his time. The nocturnes do much more than document a night that was rapidly disappearing under bright, newly installed electric lights. They also reveal how this son of a Civil War hero moved from burnishing Theodore Roosevelt's rough riding heroics in Cuba to exploring, like Stephen Crane and Ernest Hemingway, his own soul-searing war experience, and, like Joseph Conrad, to probing America's own heart of darkness.

As the definitive resource on Remington's nocturnes, this volume pairs large reproductions of these stunning paintings--including newly conserved works and others not seen publicly since the artist's death--with commentary from his personal diaries and letters and from contemporary critics.

This is a one of a kind book. I didn't purchase to read. I purchased to look at the pages in whatever order I please. It sits on the coffee table and will take you back to a different time era. Beautiful little get-a-away ;) I had wanted to show my child the old world with something other than words. perfect and nice to read as well. Thought-provoking.

Remington like Whistler was a master of nocturnes . The book is well worth the study of the color and contrast Remington used in these night scenes. Some of these scenes I would classify in the category of sunset/sunrise scenes..... such as the cover.

This book is replete with Remington's night scenes. For the working artist/illustrator, this is the Bible of scenes depicting night and other low-light situations. As always, Remington's compositions are things of wonder.

I knew very little about Remington's works before buying this book. I had of course, seen many of the famous paintings, but I hadn't really looked seriously at this man's work. Frankly, the cover of this book caught my eye and then the themes of its compositions are what inspired me to buy. I was not disappointed. What a great introduction to the works of this very fine artist. Of all the books I have seen on Remington's paintings, this one is still by far, my favorite.

The printing of the paintings are very well done. They are so well reproduced that at times I felt that if I touched the print I would feel the brushstrokes. Each painting is also printed on one page alone which eliminates the annoying "lost in the gutter" effect of a two page spread. The prints themselves range in size from 8X6 to 6X9 (portrait) and generously cover as much of the page as possible. There are also diary notes from Remington's hand as well as commentary which gives context. There is also a section in the back that breaks down several of Remington's paintings as well as his palette and technique as put forth by those conservation experts who have restored some of his work.

I am very much drawn to the dramatic and entertaining qualities of paintings and works that are set during the night as well. There's so much inherent drama in the light and in the mystique of that time, that I very much enjoy when artists explore those hours in their own works. Maybe everyone is like this, but I enjoy the stillness and gentleness that seems to overcome the world after dark. Seeing that same love of night in this artist and his works has been very rewarding.

All in all, a really great buy and a very fine book. I think you'll like it.

This book is divided in parts.
In the first part you will find the biography of Remington and all his artwork
In the second, there are all the "The color of the night" paintings in big size with the description of each one.
As a bonus, there is a brief study of the technique that used Remington to paint these great paintings.
Great book about a great artist.
