This is a very impressive, high quality hot cast bronze from the last quarter of the 20th century.
It was made using the 'lost wax' process, otherwise known as 'cire perdue', and is in the style of Frederic Remington's famous 'Bronco Buster' work.
Frederic Sackrider Remington (1861 - 1909) was an American painter, illustrator, sculptor, and writer who specialized in depictions of the Old American West, specifically concentrating on the last quarter of the 18th century American West and images of cowboys, American Indians, and the U.S. Cavalry.
Remington produced the approximate 22 inch size 'Bronco Buster' bronze sculpture statue in 1895 using the sand casting technique of the Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company. Then in early 1900's Remington moved to the Roman Bronzes Works and produced the piece using the lost wax process. He later produced a larger version in 1909 which measures 32 inches in height. The 'Bronco Buster' is the most popular of the Remington's statues and originals sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
