Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington solidified mythologies about themselves as artists, but, more importantly, about American masculinity and the nation’s frontier. In particular, Remington’s Western visions of heroic and independent cowboys were fictions to begin with—a white, male vision of dominance and conquest. Both artists’ works convey a visual narrative that still resonates today in complex and problematic ways. This exhibition brings these artists together to reveal and interrogate the myths they helped to create and perpetuate.
