The Bronco Buster Remington Bronze Sculpture
Originally cast by the Henry-Bonnard Bronze Company beginning in 1895, these Frederic Remington sculptures are wonderfully lifelike bronze statues. This fine art reproduction titled The Bronco Buster is Remington’s first and the most famous of his western bronze sculptures.
With no formal training in sculpting but with a superb understanding of horses and horsemanship, Remington was able to capture the struggle between the persistent and the rebellious.
While the original Bronco Buster was cast using the sand casting method (wax to plaster to baked sand to bronze), these art reproductions of the Remington sculptures are produced using the lost wax casting method. Of the two methods, lost wax casting is usually preferred because the reproduction more closely resembles the artist’s original model.
