This Large Frederick Remington silver sculpture, "The Rattle Snake" contains approx 10 plus troy ounces of real, fine .999 silver. It measures approx. 21"H x 18"Wx 8"D. Placed on beautiful marble base. Comes with foundry assay. Remington (1861-1909) born in Canton in northern New York. Remington was the son of the local newspaper publisher, and in 1878 entered the Yale School of Fine Arts for one year, excelling at football and art. He dropped out of school once his father died in 1880. In the fall of 1884 he married Eva Adele Caten, unfortunetly Eva left to her fathers home shortly after due to some bad business deals. Remington left to the desert in search for some soul searching, he then returned to claim his wife and all his rightful responsibilities. During this time Remington’s art career advanced and developed into one of the most prolific artistes of his time. He is best known for his art depicting the cowboys, soldiers and Native Americans of the Old West. His style was realistic, and much of his work was narrative with strong implication that the West belonged to the white man, but his Indians were portrayed with dignity and nobility. He created 22 different subjects in bronze before his death at 48.
