Frederic Remington: sculptor of action

Remington is great not just at painting action, but sculpting it, as well. Rarely, does he present a bronze horse that isn't acting up in some manner. Often, the horse is a sun-fishin' son-of-a-gun. At other times, the horse is a chargin' fool. Regardless, it is obvious that Frederic had intimate knowledge of the equestrian physique:

The Rattlesnake

The Cheyenne

The Bronco Buster

The Outlaw
