Also known as the Society of Men Who Paint the Far West, this reference is to a group of early 20th Century eastern painters who traveled and worked in the American West. The earliest group of westward travelers were sponsored in 1910 by the Santa Fe Railroad and the American Lithograpic Company and the destination was the Grand Canyon of Arizona. Included were Elliott Daingerfield, Edward Potthast, Frederick Ballard Williams and De Witt Parshall. In 1912, they exhibited their paintings in numerous venues in the East. Included were many Grand Canyon scenes, and among the additional artists were George Inness, Jr., George McCord, William Ritschel, Thomas Moran and Joseph Henry Sharp.
