Description

In late 1908 Remington began his twenty-first bronze subject, Trooper of the Plains, as homage to the mounted soldier of the 1860s. The soldier’s uniform, including the black felt cap and the Jefferson boots, was made to conform to the military fashion of the Civil War years. Typically for Remington, the soldier’s pose is intended to be historically accurate. According to historians, during a cavalry attack it was standard army procedure for soldiers to ride hard toward the Indians’ horse and livestock herds, firing their guns in the air in an attempt to stampede them away from the enemy’s camp. Remington completed the clay model in November 1908, and by the second week of the month the plaster version had been completed in the artist’s studio and sent to the Roman Bronze Works foundry. On November 11, Remington noted in his diary: “Went over to Greenpoint and worked all day completing Trooper. [A] very fine figure.” The bronze retailed for $325.
