Original  Photos of  The Sergeant

1904 The Sergeant
            During a period of only four years, Remington produced a total of three bronzes. One of which was the 1904 casting, The Sergeant. This is the smallest of Remington’s castings standing less than eleven inches tall. This bronze shows the hard life of a tough, weathered, and sharp-nosed Sergeant. The idea of a smaller bronze was that of Riccardo Bertelli, head founder of the foundry so that in return the public could more easily acquire a Remington bronze. This casting had at least three times as many signed castings than another one of comparable size known as The Savage, produced during the same four years.
            Quite often this bronze is mistaken for a grizzle veteran of the Indian wars. But, indeed this was not the intent of Remington; he wanted it to be a tribute to the First U.S. Volunteer Calvary, the Rough Riders, whom he rode with and respected so much. The Sergeant combines two types of Remington’s works the cowpuncher and the solider.
Later on the Remington Art Memorial gave permission for there to be recasting in the 1950’s and continued on until the early 1960’s. This was all under the agreement that all pieces casted during this period would be stamped “R.A.M.” to differentiate between the other pieces.
