Frederic Remington: The Truth of Other Days.

This program focuses on the life, work and times of Frederick Remington, a nineteenth-century American painter, sculptor and author who was best known for his scenes of western life. The videotape traces his career as an artist from his sketches as a young boy to his mature work as one of America's finest painters and sculptors at the turn of the century. The program also explores Remington's direct influence on filmmakers such as John Ford and his continuing effect on contemporary Western popular culture. The film was shot on high definition television and incorporates location photography in Cody, Wyoming, upstate New York, Texas and various museums. This video also features archival footage, vintage 35mm feature films, period photographs, hundreds of original artworks, and interviews with scholars and historians. It is simply a beautiful program and one well worth having as a resource for any school art and social studies program.
