Frederic Remington's Paint Box



Sorry for he poor image quality, this is an iPhone snap through a glass case.
Here is Western and Adirondack artist Frederic Remington's watercolour paint box. He used watercolours primarily for sketching.

I am fortunate enough to live in the next town over from the Frederic Remington museum located in his former home in Ogdensburg, NY. I thought my fellow WCers would find this interesting.

Looks like what Craig Young now calls the Fletcher-Watson palette.

Wow! That's pretty neat to see. Seems he liked to have a lot of colors on hand - that looks like 24 full pans, at least 8 half pans. Looks like there's a rather small brush, a jar of something (white gouache?), and some sculpting tools too.

Re: Frederic Remington's Paint Box

I don't know if he did or not, but you can use them to shove paint around, add texture and lines.

Re: Frederic Remington's Paint Box

I think the sculpting tools are not directly related to his watercolours. They probably also came from his studio and were next to the paintbox in he museum case.

Re: Frederic Remington's Paint Box

I've been to Ogdensburg to see the Remington museum and it was great. The Rockwell museum in Corning NY has several Remington paintings as well as some sculptures. It's a great visit if your into western art.

Re: Frederic Remington's Paint Box



OK I improved the contrast, set a white point and increased the image saturation a little, Looks a fun set of colours.

Wearing my Chemist hat, would be fun to to use a non destructive technique to identify the pigments
