CARL WIMAR: CHRONICLER OF THE MISSOURI RIVER FRONTIER. Rick Stewart et al. Washington University Gallery of Art, Saint Louis, 1991. Organized in association with and published by Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 264 pp. with 244 ills. (24 col.). 28 x 29 cm. LC 90-84701 ISBN 0810939584 In English.
Accompanying the most extensive exhibition devoted to Wimar (1828-1862) since 1946, this catalogue provides a substantial review of the career and achievements of the German-born artist, whose dramatic scenes of frontier life helped to shape popular conceptions of the American West. Illustrated with more than 40 paintings and many closely observed sketches of Native Americans and pioneers (including many previously unpublished works), three lengthy essays chronicle Wimar's early career in America, his training as a history painter in Dusseldorf under Emanuel Leutze during the 1850s, his later travels on the Missouri, and his work on a series of murals for the Saint Louis Courthouse.
