Nostalgia of the West Talk at Remington Museum

OGDENSBURG, NY — Art Historian Kathleen Stein will present a talk entitled “Wilderness Tamed, but Paradise Lost: the Nostalgia of the West” on Wednesday, November 29th at 7 PM at the Frederic Remington Art Museum. Stein, Instructor in Art History and Film and Representation Studies at St. Lawrence University, will consider 19th century artistic representations of the West in painting and photography and the range of views and sentiments they express about westward expansion. The presentation is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow. “Even before revisionist historians questioned the heroic narrative of the ‘winning’ of the West, the best novels and films in the Western genre often expressed ambivalence towards the march of civilization they supposedly celebrated,” notes Stein. In her presentation, Stein will explore how the first visual expressions of this ambivalence can be found in the works of some early 19th century American landscape painters, and then in the works of the photographers of the western landscape influenced by them. Remington Museum education specialist Laura Desmond adds, “I anticipate that Stein’s presentation will provide valuable insight into the art historical and cultural context for Frederic Remington’s representations of the West.” The presentation is part of a package of educational programs presented by the Remington Museum in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts entitled, “Once Upon a...
