Frederic Remington: The Color of Night

is the first exhibition devoted to the nocturnes, or night paintings, of one of America's most gifted interpreters of the Frontier West. Twenty-nine paintings are organized around Remington's life and career—his early years as an illustrator, his stint as a war correspondent, and the artistic experiments that led to his nocturnes. These works explore the challenges of painting darkness yet are filled with color and light—moonlight, firelight, and candlelight. (National Gallery of Art)
