About The Stampede

The Stampede is a renowned oil painting created by Frederic Remington in 1908, one of the most successful western painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The painting depicts a chaotic stampede of horses and cowboys, showcasing Remington’s proficiency in capturing dramatic action scenes.

This work is considered one of his final masterpieces before his death in 1909. The large-scale size of the canvas (40 inch x 60 inch) contributes to an immersive viewing experience for spectators. Moreover, Remington’s attention to detail with individual horses and their muscular bodies creates a sense of power and fear in viewers.

The Stampede has been featured in numerous exhibitions worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and sold at auctions for millions of dollars. It remains an iconic representation not just of Remington’s legacy but also showcases the significance and grandeur associated with Western art that celebrated cowboy culture as it existed at that time period.
