Gloss:
While the mounted horseman appears in many forms in world art, the cowboy on the bucking bronco appears to be a uniquely American theme. Remington created the prototype, emphasizing the classic challenge between man and animal. In this bronze, Fellows uses the subject to symbolize the virtues of commitment and hard work.
