About the Work

Here are views of the parlor in the Remingtons' new 1909 home in Ridgefield, Connecticut. On the wall, from left to right in the first photograph, are Bert Phillips' Nar-Ah-Kig-Gee-Ah-Tzur (Kit Carson's Apache Scout), Willard Metcalf's The Hudson River (in this exhibition), Julian Rix's Adirondacks (barely visible), and Blendon Campbell's Evening (Holland). Other artists whose works Remington acquired included: Francis D. Millet, Charles Dana Gibson, Robert Reid, Childe Hassam, and Anna Richards Brewster (works by the latter two are in this gallery).

Two unidentified paintings appear in the right photograph; Bruce Crane's Scene in France hangs in the far room. Remington's collection leaned toward Impressionist and Tonalist painting, although in 1908, he judged "the best art object I have" to be a bronze buffalo sculpture by Henry Shrady, which stands on the table to the right.
