"Coming through the Rye” was inspired by the artist's own illustrations, one published in "Century Magazine" in October 1888 and the other in “Harper’s Weekly” in December 1889. Four mounted cowboys, pistols raised aloft, keep a steady pace in a tight, boisterous group. The Metropolitan’s bronze is almost certainly a posthumous, unauthorized cast done by Roman Bronze Works.
