by Remington 1904
11' H 'x 4'' L
This is a great bronze depiction of a cavalry man.1904.
During a period of only four years, Remington produced a total of three bronzes. One of which was the 1904 casting, The Sergeant. This is the smallest of Remington’s castings standing less than eleven inches tall. This bronze shows the hard life of a tough, weathered, and sharp-nosed Sergeant. The idea of a smaller bronze was that of Riccardo Bertelli, head founder of the foundry so that in return the public could more easily acquire a Remington bronze. This casting had at least three times as many signed castings than another one of comparable size known as The Savage, produced during the same four years.
Quite often this bronze is mistaken for a grizzle veteran of the Indian wars. But, indeed this was not the intent of Remington; he wanted it to be a tribute to the First U.S. Volunteer Calvary, the Rough Riders, whom he rode with and respected so much. The Sergeant combines two types of Remington’s works the cowpuncher and the solider.
Later on the Remington Art Memorial gave permission for there to be recasting in the 1950’s and continued on until the early 1960’s. This was all under the agreement that all pieces casted during this period would be stamped “R.A.M.” to differentiate between the other pieces.

Fredrick Remington was born in Canton, New York October 4, 1861. He was brought up during the Civil War, his boyhood passions consisted of riding, boating, fishing, hunting, the military and the great outdoors. During school he enjoyed sketching and doodling different objects especially soldiers in military uniforms.
As a young adult Remington tried many different avenues of interest. He tried college, and dropped out in 1880 when his father died of an abrupt illness. Then he ventured out into the business world, but most of these government and business endeavors only lasted a few months.
In the summer of 1879 he met and began wooing Eva Adele Caten, and in the fall of 1884 they were married. The couple tried the wearying Western frontier life for a time but quickly opted to move to the city of Brooklyn, New York. Due to some bad dealings in business and difficulties in life, she left and returned to her father’s home.
Remington then went and wandered in the desert for several weeks, a kind of purging of the soul. After which, he returned to claim his wife and all his rightful responsibilities.
Shortly after Remington’s arrival in New York, he solicited work with Harper’s Weekly using his portfolio of western sketches. He then set out to prove himself as an artist. It was during this time that Remington’s art career bloomed and developed into one of the most prolific artistes of his time. In his sketches he portrayed the subject matter that most captivated his interests; horses, military and the western frontier. And in return Remington made these interests the interests of the public.
Remington thought this of his art work, “Cowboys are my cash.” The first of his attempts in sculpting was The Bronco Buster. In the public eye Remington is reputed to be America’s most popular nineteenth century Western artist.
December 1909, at the apex of his career and the prime of his life Remington suddenly died from a ruptured appendix. Remington was a man who loved the vigours adventures of the outdoors; taking others with him on long trail rides, nature hikes, fishing and hunting trips. His work has and always will inspire this same love and appreciation in others, for the rustic life of the West and the great outdoors.
