The Mountain Man

Frederic Remington (American, 1861-1909) Roman Bronze Works, Foundry


Remington portrayed this horse and rider with a keen sense of drama, capturing the perils of descending down a steep mountain slope.

This scene is portrayed as realistically as the sculptor's art permits.

The West's most daring explorers, trappers, and traders were known as mountain men.
