And who could forget to mention the sculptures, bronzes only, presented in the exhibition. We admire such choice of the arrow (Fig. 7) when an Indian takes it in his quiver. The copy shows, deprives the bow and arrow, transforms it into a purely conventional figure. The bronze statuettes of Remington (Fig. are the exact equivalent of his paintings while lesser-known artists offer effigies of Indian pride, like that of Alexander Phimister Proctor..
The exhibition concludes with a chapter entitled The Age of illustration. We mentioned earlier the case of Frederic Remington, who was far from being unique. Numerous illustrators were also painters. Most curious, most of the pictures published in newspapers or books were prepared not by design, but directly through tables. We’ll have fun without doubt the works of Newell Convers Wyeth Brawl as the gun that made the cover of the catalog as this painting may seem exaggerated and almost childlike. But do not underestimate a painter also capable of a work as great as The Song of the eagle who married the thunder (Fig. 9) which is reminiscent of the Nabis or symbolist paintings.
Notes1. Note that this is the last exhibition organized by Frame under the chairmanship of Francoise Cachin, who prefer to retire before the outrageous maneuvers (and illegitimate) Francine Mariani-Ducray to oust the Society it was created, and the punishment for daring to oppose the current derivative of French museums.
