In the left photograph Remington "loafs" (his term) with his dog outside his Ingleneuk studio in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. A 1908 newspaper article reported that "picturesque islands and the rugged Canadian shore give him inspiration as he sits on the 'deck' of his little studio beneath swaying cedars and watches the glow of the superb sunsets that stretch along the western horizon." The structure's glass wall faced north, to provide the most consistent light by which to paint.
The photograph on the right records a portion of Remington's grand New Rochelle studio, which was filled with mementos of his travels to the West and adventures in the North Country. Ropes controlled the light level entering a skylight.
