Title:
The Outlaw
Gloss:
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.
