Frederic Remington’s art is best known for paintings and sculptures depicting Amerca’s Old West. Whether working alone, or with others, such as Owen Wister, Remington’s paintings, sculptures, writings, and illustrations inspired an entire generation of readers and art aficionados. Many of his works were elegiac, an homage to an Old West that was rapidly disappearing. One striking accomplishment of Frederic Remington’s art was the correct depiction of horses in motion.
Frederic Remington bronze statues include The Bronco Buster, his first statue, which started the genre called cowboy sculpture. Over 275 authorized casts have been made of this small statue, by methods that include sand-casting and lost-wax casting. Only one of the 21 existing Frederic Remington sculptures, The Cowboy, is considered to be full-sized. Discerning collectors will find many fine examples of other legendary sculptures for sale or at auction online.
