1896 The Wounded Bunkie Bronze Sculpture
Copyrighted less than one year after
completion, Remington had finished The Wounded
Bunkie portraying a tragic incident of frontier life.
Technically his second sculpture, this bronze represents a substantial
advance in Remington’s sculpting. For example, the two horses are
supported by only one leg each. This shows the viewer the extreme lifelike
plunging motion of the full gallop. Another advancement shown in this
piece is the great contrast of live and dead weight which, is perfectly
stated in the joining of the two figures.
Remington had a steadfast enthusiasm for horse soldiers (Calvary), and
infantrymen, people whose rugged lifestyle he considered to be a hard
profession. As a painter and writer,
Remington’s military subjects and images were primarily derived from
frequent expeditions with cavalry regiments on station in the Southwest.
The original concept of this sculpture was probably preconceived earlier
during Remington’s career, when he painted A Dash
At the reception of the Wounded Bunkie
its popularity did not even come close to reaching that of the Broncho
Buster. However, on a more positive note, that same year Yale University
presented him with an honorary fine arts degree.
