Copyrighted in 1895, it took a year to produce. It was one of the most popular subjects, becoming almost a personal trademark for Remington. Number N23, a sand cast bronze made at a Henry-Bonnard Bronze Co., NY, was one of the sixty-four produced there before Remington shifted to the Roman Bronze Works, NY where they employed the lost wax casting process. Including the many bronzes cast after Remington’s death, Roman Bronze Works Broncho Buster casts are numbered up to 276. Remington preferred the lost wax method because of the detail it retained from the original clay model to each finished bronze, and because he could make alterations and improvements with each cast. This sand cast bronze number N23 was made in 1896 in about ten pieces, which were then welded together by expert foundrymen. Remington created 22 different subjects in bronze. The Broncho Buster was the first sculpture.
