A lone cowboy sets out on a long journey. His loyal horse slowly navigates the rough terrain carefully. The cowboy sits tall and clutches the reins, while guiding a herd of bulls. His hat his sits low on his brow, shielding the blinding sun. 100% bronze and handmade, this two-toned brown patina sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and mounted on a marble base. It features the signature Frederic Reminigton. Frederic Remington (1861-1909) was local to New York. He left when he was 19 to explore the Wild West and ended up running a Kansas horse ranch for a while before he left to come back to the East due to its failure. He did however learn many tools that he would later use in his artwork. He is quoted saying “No one can draw equestrian subjects unless he is an equestrian himself.” He learned everything he could about horses, how they move, react, and look right down to the skeletal and muscular structures. He uses all of these elements in his art. He was mainly a painter through his life and didn’t start doing sculptures until the last 14 years of his life. He became well admired by many people including President Theodore Roosevelt who felt that he “portrayed a most characteristic and yet vanishing type of American life.”
