A natural heir to the realistic tradition in Western bronzes characterized by the work of Remington and Russell, Bob Scriver’s first career was as a musician. He turned to taxidermy in the early 1950’s and sculpture in 1956, devoting his life to depicting his friends–the cowboys and Blackfoot Indians of his native Montana–in action-packed bronzes like An Honest Try.
