Frederic Remington's The Bronco Buster has become such an icon of American art history. It was Remington's first sculpture, created over an eight to ten month period in 1895. Derived from his previously published drawings and paintings, the form was a revolutionary concept in American sculpture, a technical tour de force. With this piece, Remington almost single-handedly changed the course of Western American sculpture.
