American, 1861 - 1909. Frederic Sackrider Remington was a painter, sculptor, and illustrator, well-known for paintings of the American Old West. His works are famous for portraying Western America during the end of the 19th century. Frederic Remington's sculptures were made from bronze and often featured cowboys on horses. In 1895, Remington made friends with Frederick Ruckstull, a prominent sculptor. With his help, the artist created a clay model- his first sculpture titled Broncho Buster. Broncho Buster depicted a horse standing on its hind legs and a rugged cowboy on it. After practicing for few months, Remington made a plaster cast and shaped his first bronze. Copies of these bronzes garnered high prices at Tiffany auctions. After creating his first sculpture, Remington went back to painting. After a long career of creating artworks of war experiences, Remington switched to sculpture. He created works implementing the lost-wax technique, which was a better-quality technique compared to sand casting. During this time, the sculptor created 22 types of bronzes. New York's Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company was the first foundry to cast Remington's works.
