Frederic Remington is the preeminent painter of the rugged frontier of the American West. In 1905 - 1906 he created ten portraits of explorers, including the Spaniards De Soto and De Vaca and the Americans Lewis and Clark, for Collier's Weekly magazine. In one, called The Unknown Explorers, two men are depicted astride their horses on a narrow mountain pass. Clearly, they have no idea what might lie around the next bend.
