Trooper of the Plains by Frederic Remington
"Trooper of the Plains" depicts a cavalry soldier on horseback, brandishing a revolver. The galloping horse is supported by only a clump of sage brush. Remington enjoyed experimenting with daring, gravity-defying poses that indicated his technical mastery of the sculptural process. The artist copyrighted "Trooper of the Plains" in 1909, the year of his death.
