The Scalp

Frederic Remington American
Cast by Roman Bronze Works

Not on view

Remington’s fourth bronze, and his first of a Native American subject, was copyrighted in December 1898 as “The Triumph.” The more common title, “The Scalp,” refers specifically to the lock of hair that the figure, mounted bareback on a horse, holds aloft in his right fist. The Metropolitan’s bronze is almost certainly a posthumous, unauthorized cast done by Roman Bronze Works.
