The Stampede / Frederic Remington

Curatorial Remarks

This bronze is marked as cast number 2. Although Greenbaum states that three casts were made of this sculpture before 1919, the ledger only lists cast number 1, which sold on May 31, 1916. The ledger contains neither a listing nor a date of sale for cast number 2. This bronze has two peculiar features. First, the pink color of the investment under the base is unlike other Roman Bronze Works casts found in the Gilcrease collection. Second, the cast number has been applied before casting on the outside of the base, which is inconsistent with cast number application at the foundry between 1916 and 1918. This bronze may have been cast at Roman Bronze Works at a much later date or may not be an original cast.
