8.79 | 1906 | H: 23.5 in, Base Width: 8.25 in, Base Length: 13.5 in, Base Height: 1.375 in | The Outlaw | Remington's title refers not to the rider but to the horse; an untamable or vicious horse is often called an outlaw. The cowboy, in his efforts to conquer the wild horse, symbolized civilization's general exertions to control the Western wilderness. Careful observers will note that the spur on the rider's right foot is on upside down, an error made either at the foundry or in a more recent repair. | Upper left side of base, Copyright by/Frederic Remington. Stamped upper right side of base, Roman Bronze Works, N.Y. Inscribed underneath base, No 8. | Method of Acquistion: Other: Ownership received by the BBHC in lieu of a percentage of the royalties on the Alva Replica version of The Outlaw | 8.79v2.jpg | 8.79.JPG | 8.79.jpg | 8.79.web.jpg | 8.79v2.web.jpg | Animal | Cowboy | Sculpture | bronze | Remington, Frederic
