Remington’s cowboys of the Wild West “Coming Through the Rye”
Western cowboy and painter Remington
Remington makes his appearance known in Broadmoor’s South building. The Remington Room is named after the Yale-educated New Yorker Frederic Remington. One of the greatest western painters and illustrators of his time, cowboy Frederic Remington captures the spirit of the American West like a wrangler roping a runaway calf while on horseback.
The bronze sculpture above “Coming Through the Rye” created by Frederic Remington, is an amazing western sculpture of cowboys on horseback that pushes Remington’s abilities of bronze casting. While it is difficult to tell in this photograph, Remington creates a sculpture of four horses running side-by-side with the outside horses running on air – hooves flying! If this isn’t a classic example of American West art, I don’t know what is.
For a chance to experience the American West at the Broadmoor in Colorado, take a horseback riding vacation in Colorado Springs. Once back at The Broadmoor, take out a sketch pad and let the American West art influence you while at Broadmoor, Colorado.
