The artist identified the subject as a cowboy "breaking a wild horse" in his copyright application for the first version of this sculpture. His twenty-three inch high bronze was so successful that the artist reworked the concept and modeled this larger version at the end of his life. | Right top of Base: Copyright BY/ Frederic Remington, Rear left side of Base: ROMAN BRONZE WORKS / N- Y-, Underneath Base N- 10 (inscribed) 644 | Has been called "recast" in the past.

As part of that work, he initiated a series of eleven paintings for Collier's in 1905 which was titled The Great Explorers. Radisson and Groseilliers is the only painting which remains from the original set. | LRC: FREDERIC REMINGTON [Back:] piece of wood attached to bottom of stretcher: 4 Raddison & Grossilliers - 1609 | Book: Shining Big Sea Water: The Story of Lake Superior, by Norman K.

Leggett | Remington studied the movement of horses, using the photographs of Eadweard Muybridge, and incorporated his knowledge into this representation of cowboys coming to town for a raucous celebration. This sculpture challenged Remington because he wanted to raise as many of the horses' hooves off the ground as possible, while adequately supporting the sculpture. | Lower Right of Base: Copyrighted by Frederic Remington Lower Left of Base: Roman Bronze Works N.Y.

Remington pushes the limits of sculpture, lifting as many of the horses’ hooves off the ground as possible, while still supporting the weight. | Remington, Frederic

The Board of Trustees of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center dedicates this painting to fellow Trustee Harris Haston and Advisor Carlene Lebous for their exceptional work and support of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in helping to make the exhibition "Visions of the American West: Masterworks from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center" and the January 2012 Trustees meeting a reality. Their efforts exemplify the Spirit of the American West. Enacted January 27, 2012. | By 1900 Remington had made several trips to Wyoming, and in 1897, he stayed with Buffalo Bill on his ranch. Remington's photo albums contain photographs of Cody and this region. It is thought that A Post Office in the Cow Country depicts the originally proposed town of "Shoshone." The federal authorities, however, warned the town developers that the name could cause confusion with the existing town of "Shoshoni" which lay 113 miles to the southeast. Thus the name was changed to Cody. The hills in the background of the painting resemble those just east of Cody known as McCullough Peaks. | LRC: Frederic Remington/Big Horn Basin- | 11.76.JPG | 11.76.jpg | 11.76.jpg | 11.76.web.jpg | Animal | Group | Landscape | Cowboy | Painting | black and white oil on canvas | Frederic Remington (1861-1909) A Post Office in the "Cow Country" ca.1901, oil on canvas Museum Purchase This painting appeared as an illustration for Collier's Weekly in October 1901. It was inspired by a visit Remington made to Wyoming in 1897. While there, the artist stayed with William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody at his ranch. He saw the surrounding mountain ranges of the area, including McCullough Peaks, which he depicted in the background. 11.76 | Remington, Frederic

Whitney | Remington created an interpretation of a profiled, windswept figure through his use of line and narrative. This profiled equestrian was a compositional element he used in several works. The effect of rain pouring down is achieved by using atmospheric perspective. The density of the wet sky weighs upon the rider through the use of values layered in the ink wash. The cowboy solemnly works through the rain as he helps herd cattle over the plains. | LR: Frederic Remington; LL: Copyright 1897/Russell & Son | 1.63.jpg | 1.63.JPG | 1.63.jpg | 1.63.web.jpg | Cowboy | Group | Landscape | Animal | Drawing | pen and ink and wash on paper | Remington, Frederic
