by Frederic Remington 1850-1905
Remington’s extremely ambitious group, copyrighted in 1905, includes five horses and four riders: two American cavalrymen and two Plains Indians. The soldiers, known as Dragoons, were trained from the 1830s on to combat the Plains Indians, considered among the most formidable mounted fighters of all time. Here the Dragoons have closed in on the fleeing Indians, and the four men are locked in hand-to-hand combat. While Remington depicted the historically correct military dress, rifles, and accoutrements of the Dragoons, his Indians are closer in type to the tribes he had known in the West in the 1880s and 1890s. As in many of his sculptures, the artist seemed to be challenging himself to have as few of the horses’ hooves touch the ground as possible; of twenty hooves, only seven do. Because of the intricacy of The Old Dragoons, only three casts were made during Remington’s lifetime.

This is a classic battle piece between Cavalry men and Indians by Frederic Remington.As Frederic Remington ventured out west he was ever more fascinated with the progressions being made on the Western Frontier and the way in which the people, particularly the Indians, were reacting to these changes. The Dragoons, a predecessor of the Calvary, were one of the earliest fighting forces deployed west of the Mississippi to patrol these territories.This is a dramatic bronze sculpture that would be a stunning addition to your home. The four dragoons on horseback are brought to life with the intricate details of the horses in motion.
Many stories circulated about the exploits of these brave men who often engaged the Indians in skirmishes to defend the early settlers. One of the most common tricks deployed by the Indians would be to steal the horses of the camped soldiers to get them on foot. These stories were no doubt the source of Remington’s inspiration in the depiction of this sculpture, as he often rode on long expeditions with the Calvary and would have come by them.
One interesting detail to note is that the lead Indian in the earlier castings was depicted as having lance and later he replaced it with a buffalo hide, which is being used to deflect the dragoons saber. Perhaps as time went on, Remington realized that it would appear that the skirmish was more accidental on the part of the Indians stealing the horse, if they were not so well armed. The Soldiers however, are aptly armed, giving chase, well intending to recover the lost mount. Remington paid close attention to the historical accuracy of the hardware such as the officer’s saddle, canteens and as always the uniforms.
Only six castings were produced of this piece, the first four with no numbers and the last two with the numbers five and six. Later productions made by Roman Bronze works showed a marked decline in the detail, texture and patina; indicating these productions were not over seen by Remington.

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.
