Book Review
Cowboys and horses, adventure in wide-open spaces. The mythos of the Old West comes alive in the paintings, drawings, and sculptures of Frederic Remington (1861-1909). Born during the Civil War and educated at Yale University, Remington committed his life to making portraits of the American frontier. The Frederic Remington Art Museum Collection presents the collection of the museum founded by and housed in the former home of Remington's widow, Eva Caten Remington.

For much of his creative life, Remington worked as an illustrator for publications like Harper's Weekly. His renderings of life in the Old West were hugely successful, and some even accompanied an essay by President Theodore Roosevelt. His drawings displayed a strongly believable atmosphere: [Remington's] illustrated scenes from the Apache War were rendered in...



The Song of Hiawatha
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

From School Library Journal
Grade 3 Up-This picture-book version of the American epic is sure to elicit a wide spectrum of reactions. In contrast to Susan Jeffers's Hiawatha (Dial, 1983), a treatment that covers the legendary Native American leader's childhood, Early provides a broader scope. In spreads containing text on the left and an illustration on the right, she begins with Gitche Manito's descent to Earth to call the hostile tribes to peace and to promise a prophet to lead them. Excerpts from the poem describe Hiawatha's maternal line and cosmic paternity, his early life with old Nokomis, his prowess as a hunter, the confrontation with his father (the West-Wind), and his marriage to Minnehaha. Brief bits of prose stand in for the missing stanzas. The paintings are decorative in nature, a quality emphasized by the quiltlike...

From Publishers Weekly
In Andrews's ninth intriguing mystery to feature forensic geologist Em Hansen (after 2003's Killer Dust), Em explores a whole new aspect of her discipline after reluctantly agreeing to try to authenticate a Frederick Remington painting through pigment analysis for a client she dislikes. As she travels through such vividly depicted locales as Cody, Wyo., and the Amish and Mennonite areas of Pennsylvania, Em gathers a history of pigment as well as information to fuel her growing suspicion that something is terribly wrong. She encounters the seedier side of the art world, a renowned Pennsylvania family's horrific secrets and murder. Thanks to clear logical thinking, Em ultimately reaches all the right conclusions. If there's a fault line beneath the surface, it lies in the surfeit of technical terminology, though...

K-Gr 3-The colorful and attractive covers, each featuring a representative work of art and portrait of the artist, beg to be opened. Inside, brightly colored accent pages and borders invite browsing. One-to-two page chapters with limited text, large type, and numerous color and black-and-white photos and reproductions provide a basic introduction to the artist and his work. With the series' targeted audience in mind, the authors reduce the rich and complex lives of the artists to select tidbits of information and broad simplifications. Thus, youngsters learn that Leonardo, besides being a great painter, "lost his teeth and much of his hair" as an old man and that Moore "liked to show people lying on their side." Giesecke informs readers that Remington loved the "cowboy life" and drew animals that "looked...

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-4–Two-page chapters offer basic information about the life and work of the artists and the eras in which they lived. Splotches of color, varied borders, small reproductions, and many photos provide visual interest in these small-format books. Reproductions give a flavor for the artists' work, but in some cases the paintings that are shown are not the ones discussed; instead, unrelated artwork is reproduced. The sentences are often choppy and/or awkward. All in all, these are not necessary purchases. Ernest Raboff's Frederic Remington (HarperCollins, 1988; o.p.) offers a good critique of Remington's work, but it has no biographical material. Robyn Montana Turner's Mary Cassatt (Little, Brown, 1992) provides more information about the artist and features larger and more numerous reproductions....

From Library Journal
Texas businessman/philanthropist William Hogg acquired 41 interpretations of the late 19th-century American West by Frederic Remington through the 1920s. His sister, Ima, eventually removed them from the family offices and donated them to Houston's Museum of Fine Arts in 1943. Twenty-two of the "most important" works (oil paintings and one bronze sculpture) have been selected for analysis and color illustration. Neff (curator, Museum of Fine Arts) does a fine job with the catalog entries; her extensive archival research is apparent. Six of the paintings were further analyzed using infrared reflectography and x-radiography by Wynne Phelan (conservator, Museum of Fine Arts). However, those interested in learning more about Remington's art might be disappointed that the other 19 works did not receive this thorough...
