Catalogue Note

The present work is one of three images Frederic Remington created to illustrate "The Story of the Dry Leaves," which was published in the June 1899 edition of Harper's Monthly. Remington wrote the story himself while recovering from malaria contracted in Cuba, where he had served as a war correspondent for the New York Journal during the Spanish-American War in the late 1890s.
