Frederic Remington. A. Hoen Lithographic Co. Baltimore, MD, 1893
This is a rare original c. 1893 poster for Buffalo Bill’s Wild West titled “REARING BUCKER” featuring artwork by Frederick Remington. “BUFFALO BILLS' WILD WEST AND CONGRESS OF ROUGH RIDERS OF THE WORLD” appears in large letters across the top of the poster. This poster measures about 41” x 27” and has been professionally backed to linen. The lower margin indicates this poster was published by A. Hoen Lithographic Company of Baltimore, MD. The poster “REARING BUCKER” is loosely based on "The Broncho Buster," Remington's first sculpture, and the first sculpture of a cowboy cast in bronze. That sculpture was adapted from Remington’s drawing "Pitching Broncho," published in the April 30, 1892 issue of Harper's Weekly.
This poster is not dated but the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, Wyoming holds a copy which they date as c.1893 so thus the date.
This poster grades as “A-“ and is really a wonderful specimen of this rare poster of which only a couple are known to exist. Please contact us for additional information.
