American artist Frederic Sackrider Remington (1857-1926) was a painter, illustrator, and sculptor who specialized in depicting the Old West. His works show scenes from the late 19th century Western United States, including cowboys, US Cavalry, and American Indians. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1895 and is considered one of the most important painters of the American West.

Aside from his paintings, Remington also produced more than 3,000 drawings, 22 bronze sculptures, a Broadway play, and more than 100 articles. His famous night paintings were painted at a time when the American frontier was coming to an end. Many people view his work as a elegy to the past. This was true for many of his paintings, although his work was far from perfect. The artist's art was influenced by his travels, which led him to travel widely throughout the United States.

While in Montana, Remington saw the vast prairies of the West for the first time. While he was there, he met some Indians and worked on a sheep ranch in Peabody, Kansas. In 1884, Remington married Eva Adele Caten and moved to Brooklyn, New York. While in the city, he studied art at the Art Students League and in 1888, his illustrations first appeared in the magazine Century.
