This is a Frederic Remington bronze titled "Coming Through the Rye". The bronze was originally cast in 1902 and is one of Remington's most iconic Western sculptures. The piece depicts four cowboys on galloping horses riding into town after a long cattle drive. Each one has a hold of the reins with one hand and is firing a pistol in the air with the other. Interestingly, this was Remington's 8th bronze and the piece shows only six of the sixteen hooves touching the ground including the far left horse with all four hooves in the air. The bronze sits on a solid marble base with a brass placard that reads "Coming Through the Rye by Frederic Remington". The bronze itself shows the artist's signature and is numbered 7/100. This bronze is referred to as the "Regular" size and measures 27" x 29" and is 28" tall. This bronze, when available for sale, retails for $6,500.
