The Bucker and the Buckeroo
Gift of William E. Weiss
In a letter written about the time he modeled this sculpture, Russell said, "Bronk riding is the greatest and only real American Sport, and it takes regular men to play the gam(e)." Russell copyrighted this sculpture in 1925 with the title The Bucker and the Buckeroo. After the artist's death, an author on Russell's works identified this sculpture as The Weaver, a title Russell actually had intended for an earlier sculpture.
Base below horse's tail: CM Russell (skull) [Foundry mark:] ROMAN BRONZE WORKS NY.
This cast has a foliage support of the midsection of the horse. It appears that Russell originally intended the sculpture to be made without that support, but it must have been to difficult to cast. Also, in this cast, the McCarty rope going from horse to hand of rider is a twisted wire; in other casts it is more substantial.
