About this artwork

As Frederic Remington quickly mastered the art of bronze sculpting, he turned to increasingly complex compositions and tested the limits of casting techniques by freeing his figures from their bases. Coming through the Rye displays four pistol-waving cowboys; only six of the sixteen horse hooves touch the ground. Although the faces and gestures of the men are best seen from the front, the side view truly conveys the dynamic sense of motion, the stride of the animals, and the details of the clothing.
