The Sid Richardson Museum’s exhibition Violent Motion: Frederic Remington’s Artistry in Bronze runs through Sunday, June 2. Admission is free to the museum, which will offer free docent-led tours on Tuesdays at 2 p.m. during the exhibition.
Four sculptures will be added to the exhibition: The Outlaw, two more casts of The Norther and The Cheyenne, all from private collections, and The Mountain Man from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The additional casts of The Norther and The Cheyenne – subjects that have already been on display in Part 1 of the exhibition – will afford an opportunity to compare changes made by the artist between earlier and later casts. Dr. Rick Stewart, guest curator of the exhibition, said that only three casts of The Norther were made, and having two of those casts on loan from private collections is unique.
As in Part 1 of the exhibition, Remington’s bronzes will be juxtaposed with his paintings to demonstrate how his artworks reveal action in a two-dimensional versus a three-dimensional medium.
The Sid Richardson Museum is located at 309 Main St., Fort Worth. For more information, visit sidrichardsonmuseum.org or call 817-332-6554.
