Abstract: Homer|Remington, the catalogue accompanying the exhibition Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, is an exploration of the unexpected resonances between the themes, artistic sensibilities, and technical process of contemporaries Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington. This is the first project to compare the work of two American artists who have, perhaps more than any other practitioners of their moment, shaped this country’s perceptions about its landscapes and its peoples. Co-organized by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (ACMAA), the Denver Art Museum (DAM), and the Portland Museum of Art (PMA), this exhibition and catalogue explore the social and cultural context in which Homer and Remington rose to prominence to reveal their shared role in creating foundational stories about the United States. The exhibition is jointly curated by Diana Greenwold, Associate Curator of American Art at the PMA, Maggie Adler, Curator of American Art at the ACMAA, Thomas Smith, Director of the Petrie Institute of Western American Art at the DAM, and Jennifer Henneman, Assistant Curator of Western American Art at the DAM.
