The Outlaw, created in 1906 by Frederic Remington, is a bronze sculpture that depicts a scene from the American Old West. The dimensions of the artwork are 22 5/8 x 15 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches (57.5 x 38.7 x24.8 cm). It is inscribed with “Frederic Remington/Copyright by” on the base and “ROMAN BRONZE WORKS N-Y-” along the base, as well as “No.20” beneath the base.
The sculpture portrays a horse rather than a rider, despite its title “The Outlaw.” This choice reflects Remington’s desire to highlight the importance of horses in Western culture and their significance in battles during this period. The figure is highly detailed with intricate design work put into each aspect of it.
Several private collectors own this work; however, it was once part of Kennedy Galleries’ selection in New York City for public viewing.
Overall, The Outlaw showcases not only Western culture but also Frederick Remington’s attention to detail and dedication to creating an accurate portrayal of this historical era through his art form.
