Radisson and Groseilliers
Gift of Mrs. Karl Frank
In 1903 Remington signed an exclusive contract with Collier's magazine to produce works in color on various historic themes related to the American frontier. As part of that work, he initiated a series of eleven paintings for Collier's in 1905 which was titled The Great Explorers. Radisson and Groseilliers is the only painting which remains from the original set.
