For your consideration this lot features, "The Pool In The Desert” by Frederic Remington, color lithograph from the 1909 Collier's Portfolio titled ‘Eight New Remington Paintings’, Copyright 1909 By P. F. Collier & Son printed on lower left and Painted By Frederic Remington on lower right. This 1908 painting was inspired by Remington's travels through the New Mexico and Arizona Territories in 1907 and 1908. It shows a group of mounted Navajos approaching a desert waterhole through the tall grass. Remington used a warm palette and strong brushstrokes to intensify the image. Given the huge popularity of Frederic Remington's western artwork with the public, Collier's magazine began purchasing the publishing rights to Remington's work in 1901. Several years later, Collier's signed a multi-year contract with Remington to publish his works as covers, two-page centerfolds and one-page frontispieces in Collier's magazine. Collier's published Remington's images in the magazine about once a month. As Collier's had the publishing copyrights to Remington's work, it exploited those rights by creating special print portfolios of Remington's paintings that it sold to its magazine subscribers. The portfolios were heavily advertised in Collier's magazine. The prints in the 1909 portfolio are some of Remington's last and most mature artworks, as Remington died at the end of 1909. Frederic Sackrider Remington was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in the genre of Western American Art. His works are known for depicting the Western United States in the last quarter of the 19th century and featuring such images as cowboys, American Indians, and the US Cavalry. This wood framed print is in good overall condition, very slight age tanning noted, no marring exhibited. Wood frame exhibits some foxing, no other obvious marring noted. Visible art measures 6.75"W x 10.5"L, frame is 12"W x 17.5"L x .75"D
