Early in 1893, Remington and his friend John Howard visited the hacienda San Jose de Bavicora, a 900,000 acre cattle ranch just northwest of Chihuahua, Mexico. At that time, the hacienda was owned by Jack Gilbert, whose long struggle with the Apaches in building his land empire was chronicled by Remington in 3 illustrated articles for Harper's Monthly running from December, 1893 to March, 1894. Mexican Cowboys Coming to the Rodeo was an illustration for the last article, "A Rodeo at Los Ojos." Remington described the scene, "My imagination had never pictured before anything so wild as these leather-clad...

This is the earlier of two castings the Norton has of this particular piece and there are some significant differences between them. In 1903 Remington set out to make a sculpture of "one of these old Iriquois [sic] Trappers who followed the Fur Companies . . . in the 30 & 40ties." In his earliest version of the statue, of which this is cast number 2, he has the trapper holding his rifle somewhat awkwardly balanced in his left hand while his right hand clutches the horses tail strap; the horses right rear foot is raised, making the figure appear...

Weight 6 1/2 lbs. This piece is a cast in bronze of the original small-scale model done by Remington preparatory to making the full-scale model, which is the common one. This small "Mountain Trapper" is probably Remiongton's most unique bronze.

In 1892, a special edition of Francis Parkman's The Oregon Trail, originally published in 1847, was issued with 77 illustrations by Frederic Remington. Parkman's work contained some of the earliest accounts of life on the prairie and in the Rocky Mountains. He tells of riding along Scott's Bluff in Nebraska one morning with traveling companion Henry Chatillon and finding that they were approaching "Old Smoke's lodges". A warrior approached them and, after some communication, escorted them to the camp at Horse Creek. Parkman described his first sight of the chief: On the farther bank stood a large and strong man,...

Christmas card framed. This Christmas card drawn by Remington was sent by him to Mr. Ricardo Bertelli, president of the RBW, probably in 1905 (the bronze was copyrighted in May 1906). It depicts Remington and Bertelli standing beside a wax model of the bronze later known as the "Outlaw". Remington says, "Can you cast him?" and Bertelli answers, "Do you think I am one of the Wright Brothers?". At the top is the inscription "Merry Xmas Bartelli from Remington" and on the back is written "To my friend Mr. Graham: R. Bertelli."

Remington delighted in producing sculptures that required an exquisite sense of balance on the part of the sculptor. In many of his works featuring the occasional struggle between a cowboy and his horse, he performed feats of technical virtuosity, causing the foundry that cast his works constant anxiety as they worked to replicate the balance of the original model. One critic marveled at how Remington had this horse "doing an acrobatic turn on his forefeet with the hindquarters almost erect in the air." In some of the castings, Remington introduced a slight variation: sometimes the horse's tail is down, sometimes...

The influence of Impressionism is fully evident in this 1906 oil painting by Remington. Compared to the careful delineation and finish we see in earlier paintings like Arrival of a Courier and Blandy, this work instead uses broad planes of color, negative space, and atmospheric perspective to create the scene. This was more than likely an early oil version, or oil sketch of a larger work which appeared in the October 20, 1906 issue of Collier's Weekly and is currently on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Like Calling the Moose, it gives us a hint of...

Little is known about the background of this pastel work. It was probably created by Remington during the time he worked upon a series of eight pastel drawings called Bunch of Buckskins which were published as lithographic prints in 1901. His use of pastel demonstrates Remington's proficiency as a draftsman. Though pastels had been around for centuries (Leonardo da Vinci is often credited as their inventor, though they may predate him), they had achieved fresh popularity in the late 19th century through their use by the Impressionists, particularly Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt. Pastels themselves consist of pure pigment which...
