    Charles Schreyvogel gained early exposure to the western United States from sketching horses, cowboys and Native Americans in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. He made his first trip west in 1893, but it did not result in popular success for his art. Only after winning first prize at the National Academy of Design in 1901 was Schreyvogel's reputation secured. "Schreyvogel was a fine artist and while he was by no means as productive as Remington, he was his equal on frontier military art" (Dykes, Western High Spots).
