John Mix StanleyUntitled (The Brook)
August 21, 2020
According to Julie Schimmel, Ph.D., this painting is among a rare number of landscapes Stanley created. Some were based on the artist’s travels in the Northwest between 1846 and 1847. Others, including Untitled (The Brook), were painted in response to a trip that Stanley made with his family to the White Mountains in 1868. During this period, the artist was experimenting with small horizontal, oval-shaped canvases, at least five of Native American subjects and at least three of landscapes. A majority of Stanley’s smaller landscapes like this one feature an intimate space framed by richly green vegetation and include a pool of water or a brook.

Frederic Remington, known for his renditions of cowboys, Native Americans and the animals of America’s disappearing wilderness initially had a prolific career as an illustrator. In December of 1899, Remington traveled to Mattawa, Canada with his friend and journalist Julian Ralph and their guides Pierre and Antoine. Ralph chronicled their journey for the October 1890 issue of Harper’s Monthly in an article titled “Antoine’s Moose-Yard” and Remington provided the illustrations. These two grisaille paintings were featured in the article, A Moose Bull Fight as the frontispiece and The Track in the Winter Forest, which depicts a 28 year old Remington (in the white coat) alongside his guide Antoine who is teaching him to read the tracks in the snow.
