Here ride four cowboys, in unison with each other and their horses. They are a team of friends that roam the land together, a force to be reckoned with in their own right. Pistols held high up to the sky they fire rounds and enjoy this time together as their horses gallop at full speeds. They wear the same outfits; a nomad cowboy getup of chaps, spurred boots, collared button down long sleeved shirts and wide brimmed cowboy hats. They are all four around the same age, assumed to be the 50’s, and they all also have mustaches. They are true friends and share a level of companionship few are lucky enough to experience, inseparable by anything. A two tone brown patina is used and this sculpture is crafted by hand using the ancient “Lost Wax Method”. Signed Frederic Remington.

 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.”
