Can you tell me more about the bronze horse and rider on the other side of the parking lot? That’s a sad figure. Is it a Remington?
That sculpture features a slouched Native American man atop a starving horse, a reference to the symbolic plight of the defeated warrior. It was carved by Charles Cary Rumsey in the 1900s.
It does recall Remington's "Outlier," on the fifth floor and its "vanishing Indian" rhetoric.
Why is it outside?
It was first installed on the front steps of the facade, but was moved in 1934 when the facade underwent renovations.
