The Norther was Remington's first bronze done with the lost-wax casting method, and the first of many bronzes he would do with the Roman Bronze Works foundry.
Remington described the bronze as: "A cowboy on horseback in a snow storm. Severe wind blowing from rear. Both man and horse are almost frozen." Looking at the complex, rippling textures of the sculpture, it is not hard to imagine the presence of the brutal, biting wind that envelopes both horse and rider.
Today it is one of the rarest of all the artist's bronzes.
