Additional Information

Accompanied by a letter of authenticity by Willliam E. Paxson, Jr., (great-grandson of the artist and author of the book E. S. Paxson Frontier Artist)

Born before Frederic Remington and Charlie Russell, who was a close friend, Edgar S. Paxson had a front-row view of history during the final days of the Wild West. The New York-based artist was encouraged to go West by James Fenimore Cooper novels. After heading to the Montana Territory in 1877, the artist spent time as a cowboy, hunter, stagecoach guard, military scout and a sign painter before becoming an artist. He would go on to paint many historic scenes, although his Native American portraits are highly desirable.
