The Schoolmaster had to Bear the Brunt of Each Attack

The Schoolmaster had to Bear the Brunt of Each Attack a.k.a. No Understand by Frederic Remington

1901, ink wash on paper,
bequest of Phillips and Edna Cavin Taylor
 
Publication: Garland, Hamlin, "Whiteman’s Court,” Collier’s Weekly, June 1, 1901, p. 11.
 
When this artwork was loaned to the museum in 1998, it was with the expectation that it would one day become a donation. This winter Edna Cavin Taylor died (at 104!) leaving the painting to the museum. According to her daughter, Susan T. Brown, the painting spent years carefully rolled up in Phillips Taylor's Chicago office. Edna had it framed as a gift on their 50th wedding anniversary. The work had belonged to Phillips Taylor's father, David Lee Taylor, who worked in advertising and may have received the work as a gift from Robert Collier of Collier's Weekly, where the painting was reproduced in 1901. It's now on display as part of "Remington in (Mostly) Black and White."
