Description

Description: In these two autograph letters signed Eva Remington writes about her recently deceased husband’s paintings.

In a March 10, 1910 letter addressed to Annesley & Co. she writes in part: “Mr. M. Knoedler has the handling of all of Mr. Remington’s paintings and thru them you can get any they have not already disposed of.”

In a June 1, 1910 missive she writes in part: “the copyright is given to the person buying the painting with the proviso that it is not to be reproduced in any way. ‘The Mystery’ was one of the last paintings Mr. Remington did and he did not wish them reproduced.”

Frederic Remington died at the age of 48 on December 26, 1909. He was born in Canton, NY and as a young man his family moved to Ogdensburg, NY. After graduating Yale in 1879 he held clerical jobs in Albany, NY. After he married, he spent most of his creative years living and working from their home in New Rochelle, NY. Though as a painter, illustrator, sculptor, his themes were of the American West, he was somewhat New York-centric. Having an Albany, NY art dealer makes sense in that context. The Albany art and frame dealers Annesley & Vint for many years handled Remington’s art.

Written on black bordered mourning stationery imprinted “Lorul Place Ridgefield Connecticut”. Each measures 6 1/2″ x 5 1/8″. Item #A01400
