In The Outlaw, Frederic Remington returned to his successful bucking horse and rider subject.  Unlike The Broncho Buster in which the animal rears, the sculptor described the horse's movement in this later work as "pitching."  The horse jumps onto its front foot which is connected to a sagebrush shrub for support.  Remington intended to minimize the appearance of support derived from the base as much as possible.  The work is an exercise in how a sculptor can exploit the tensile strength of bronze; in this sculpture there is so little support that the rider looks as though he is suspended in mid-air.  Remington accentuated the tension in the rider's body by finely delineating the wrinkles in his shirt in order to draw the viewer's attention to the rider's breaking point.


 
This horse and rider typifies Remington's eternal narrative, one of conflict between man and nature, in this case, man versus animal.  Please click on the thumbnail images above to see additional views, and then click on any image to enlarge it.
 
We have cast The Outlaw in our own California art foundry using 40 lbs. (18 kg) of pure bronze.  The sculpture is finished with a classic bronze patina in tones of browns.  Mounted onto a black marble base, it stands 23" (58 cm) high.  The sculpture is signed with the artist's name in its bronze base and is stamped with its individual number in our limited edition of 500 castings.
 
This is a fine bronze sculpture, made to high standards.  We guarantee your satisfaction.
