1900 The Norther Bronze Statue

    Remington’s first bronze done in the lost wax method was The Norther. The Norther, is the fifth in Remington’s bronzes it can be thought of as a cowboy on horse back in a frigid snow storm. There are very fierce winds blowing from the backside of the cowboy. The half frozen figure is not shown as a man that has overcome the fierceness of nature, but one rendered vulnerable by the drastic elements.
    The lost wax gave Remington the freedom to experiment with details, and also helped him to come even closer to grasping the life like reality in sculpture. He was able to paint upon the sculptures in the final stages to add the effects of lifelike texture.
    The Norther was in Remington’s mind potentially unpopular to the public. He thought that not very many would want a sculpture of a lone soldier on his horse caught dead in the in their tracks in a chilly, snow wind. It was probably this that urged Remington to only have three original castings produced.
