Catalogue Note

The commentary that accompanies these drawings in the Frederic Remington online catalogue raisonné states: "Remington began the illustrations for Powhatan Clarke's article, 'The Military Riding-School of Germany,' in 1891 when Clarke was transferred to Germany. While there Clarke sent Remington photos and books on the German military that Remington referred to when making his drawings. In an October 14, 1891 letter to Clarke, Remington wrote, 'I have finished the drawings on the German Cav. School'...They were subsequently published in Harper's Weekly on November 14, 1891" (remington.centerofthewest.org).
