I have always loved Remington's work be it a paining or sculpture.There is so much movement in each work.
I suppose I am lucky that I have a copy of "Cheyenne".
Above:The Mountain Man depicts a dramatic moment in the daily life of a frontier trapper, in which he and his mount work together to descend a precarious slope.
Cast by New York’s Roman Bronze Works foundry in the lost-wax technique, the earliest "Mountain Man" statuettes are sharply delineated with a rich variety of textures, from the fringed buckskin garment to the animal’s hairy coat to the rocklike base.
The Metropolitan Museum purchased this statuette—and three others—from Remington in 1907.
With many thanks to The Met
