The Sergeant / Frederic Remington

Gallery Label

At the suggestion of Riccardo Bertelli of the Roman Bronze Works, Remington created some small works to tap a market for less expensive sculpture. At $50 this proved to be a popular work as 20 casts were made and sold within four years, and 40 more were cast posthumously.

From the exhibition:Frontier to Foundry: the Making of Small Bronze Sculpture in the Gilcrease Collection, December 2014 - March 2015.
