“Telling the story of American Art”

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art is located in Fort Worth, Texas. It was established by Amon G. Carter to house his collection of paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Carter’s will provided a museum in Fort Worth devoted to American art. His daughter, Ruth Carter Stevenson, carried out his wishes and the museum opened to the public in January 1961. When the museum opened in the aforementioned year, its first director, Mitchell A. Wilder, sought a broader vision for its collection. Wilder believed that the grand story of American art could be interpreted as the history of many artists at different times working on “successive frontiers” in the great pageant of American history. As a result of this vision, the museum's collections began to expand in many categories, from the first landscape painters of the 1830s to modern artists of the twentieth century.
