Mountain Man
by Frederic Remington 1903

This amazing Western themed sculpture features a mountain man riding a horse down a steep and treacherous rocky mountain slope. The design is extremely detailed and realistic, showcasing expert craftsmanship by the sculptor, Frederic Remington. He "The Mountain Man" as one of the "old Iroquois trappers who followed the Fur Companies in the Rocky Mountains in the 1830s & 40'ties," probably referring to French Canadian trappers.

The sculptor chose a dramatic episode in the daily life of a trapper, his and his mount's descent on an almost vertical slope. The Mountain Man bronze portrayed one of the most revered and popular Western genres, the fur trapper slowly, the rider descends a summit trail. Man and horse work together to make the trip down a treacherously rocky decline: the horse has been given full rein to choose its pace and path; the rider leans sharply back and balances himself by holding on to the tail strap with his right hand.

His horse quivers nervously, lifting a hind leg and front hoof as the pair skid down the mountain. The rider tugs at the rein with one hand and steadies himself with the other hand as he leans back in the saddle. Together, rider and horse continue the decline with caution in every tense move.

The Mountain Man statuettes are sharply delineated with a rich variety of textures, particularly evident in the fringed buckskin garment, the animal's hairy hide, and the rocklike base. This bronze portrayed one of the most revered and popular Western genres, the fur trapper. As Remington described in a letter to the museum curator of the Corcoran Gallery of art ( where he intended to market the piece), “This Mountain Man I intend to be as one of those old Iroquois trappers who followed the fur companies in the Rocky Mountains in the 30’s and 40’ties.”

It was important to Remington that the sculpture shows the skillfulness of balance and surefootedness; and also gives great attention to the detail in the Mountain Mans’ attire. Letting the viewer gain a feeling that they are right there on the side of the mountain. Remington believed that this 1903 bronze when viewed from the front or side conveyed a dizzy sense of height, in hopes to show all viewers just how dangerous the adventurous of these individuals’ lives were.

He compiled his ideas from a number of resources which consisted mainly of photos and a few sketches, one of which was Prussian military officer riding down a mountain. It was important to Remington that he pay attention to the stance of the rider and animal to ensure the life likeness. This seems to be a major emphasis employed later on in his career as he became more critical of his own work. The Mountain Man bronze is distinguishable by Remington’s fine attention to detail.

This new handmade bronze made by the "Lost Wax Process" that assures the "Highest Quality Lowest Prices" for over 30 years of World of Bronze in the bronze business Artist: 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.
