Enhance your home with the untamed grace of the Trooper of the Plains bronze Remington reproduction statue.
Made using the Lost Wax Method, the Trooper of the Plains statue is composed of a copper and tin mixture, which protects the piece from rust. The beautiful marble base features a plate with the name of the artist and the statue engraved on it.
The artist, Frederic Remington (1861-1909), was born on October 1, 1861, in Canton, New York. Remington was first considered as a painter, but later in his life his bronze sculptures were so extremely well done that he is today known for his sculptures more than his paintings. Remington attended the Yale Art School, and after his father's death in 1880, traveled west with what little money he had. During his travels, he worked as a sheep rancher and sketched everything around him, recording everything on paper with his artistic abilities. When he returned to New York he had only a few dollars remaining, but he had with him a large collection of drawings from his years of travel.
A magazine made Remington's first purchase and the name of the painting was'The Apache War.' This was his first illustration published and he went on to be a famous artist there after. Remington started his career as a sculptor in 1895. This is when his first sculpture titled The Bronco Buster was announced.
Remington produced around twenty different sculptures during his short-lived career. He used the Lost Wax Method for his castings, a method dated back to early Roman times. When Frederic Remington passed in December 1909, his widow left all of his art to the Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York, after she passed away years later.
