Hunting Antelope

Description (Brief)
This print is one of fifteen chromolithographs that were included in the 1889-1890 folio "Sport or Fishing and Shooting" published by Bradlee Whidden of Boston and edited by A.C. Gould. These prints are based on watercolors that were commissioned for the publication, and illustrated by prominent American artists. Each folio illustration was accompanied by a single leaf of descriptive text followed by an account of the depicted sporting scene. The publication was advertised as having been reviewed for accuracy by a renowned group of anglers and hunters prior to printing.
This print was originally titled and numbered on the text page as 5. Hunting Antelope [i.e. Prong-horn] Frederic Remington. Depicted are two men on barren mesa with the game in the distance. In the foreground, one cowboy is holding a rifle and the reins of his horse while standing near standing near a second saddled and hobbled cow pony. The second hunter is kneeling in the background, shooting at the antelope in the distance.
This print is by well known western artist, Frederick Remington (1861-1909). It is one of his first two prints to be issued in color and was published less than a decade after Remington first traveled to the American West.
