Bronze 'The Cowboy' after Frederic Remington
A mid 20thc large bronze of 'The Cowboy', after Frederic Remington.
This was modelled after the larger-than-life sculpture of the same name in Fairmont Park, Philadelphia, USA.
Remington was a painter, illustrator, sculptor & author who travelled widely throughout America. He was born in New York in 1861 and died at only forty-eight in 1909. He was well-known for portraying cowboys & cavalrymen, in both bronze & paint.
This piece does portray his signature, as seen in photograph 5.
His pieces had a lot of energy & movement as you can see in this piece as he tugs on the reigns of his horse & turns from his saddle.
This bronze is a very good quality casting.
