Additional Information

Born in Boston far away from the Western lifestyle, Robert Farrington Elwell was given entrée into the West through one of its most famous figures, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody. Elwell had illustrated some of Cody’s Wild West Show advertising, and the two became unlikely friends—Elwell was 18, Cody was 46. Within a short few years, Elwell would come to meet Frederic Remington, Teddy Roosevelt, Chief Iron Tail and Annie Oakley. Later in his career, he would illustrate for Harper’s, Century Magazine and also pulp magazines Adventure, West and Frontier Stories. He eventually settled in Arizona, where he painted and sculpted Western, adventure and sporting scenes.
