“The Sergeant” is Remington’s smallest and one of his most commercially successful sculptures. This bust of a mustachioed man would come to have a pendant in “The Savage” (39.65.51a,b) in 1908. Both, miniaturized in scale, represent personality types rather than specific individuals. The Metropolitan’s bronze is almost certainly a posthumous, unauthorized cast done by Roman Bronze Works.
