This portrait of a Mexican military engineer is one of dozens Remington painted in rapid succession on a working trip to Mexico in 1889. Remington was fascinated with all aspects of
military gear and with perceived "types" within the groups he depicted the most cowboys, military figures, and Native Americans. This painting represents the figure more as a typical character than as a portrait of an individual person.
