Charles Schreyvogel, the Artist

The Charles Schreyvogel Papers is a small collection which primarily documents the period when Schreyvogel was one of the most popular historical Western genre artists in America: from 1899, when he won the Clarke Prize for his painting My Bunkie, through his untimely death in 1912. Primary focuses of the collection are Schreyvogel’s career, his artwork and his relationships with some of the most prominent men and women of his time, including William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Elizabeth B. Custer, Frederic Remington and Theodore Roosevelt. Collection photographs document Schreyvogel’s family and art career. Below are just a few of the items in the collection. Please also view the Guide to the Charles Schreyvogel Papers.
