Cast from original molds by American artist Frederic Remington (1861-1909), this bronze sculpture depicts a Native American figure racing on horseback. Titled “The Cheyenne”, the original bronze version of this sculpture was cast in 1907 and now resides in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Standing on a freeform base, this bronze sculpture displays Remington’s cast signature at the base of the sculpture and displays a beautiful patina.
About the Artist:
Born in Canton, New York in 1861, Frederic Remington became an American sculptor and illustrator that specialized in depictions of Native Americans and the culture surrounding the old west. He attended school at Yale University for art, the only male student of his freshmen class. He traveled to Montana to purchase a cattle farm and then a mine operation, and after realizing that he couldn’t afford either, fell in love with the authentic west, drawing the people he would see on his travels.
