DescriptionDavid Cargill (American, born 1928)
88 x 72 x 96 inches (223.5 x 182.9 x 243.8 cm)
David Cargill has been a fixture in the American sculpting community, particularly in Texas, for over five decades. His work can be seen at Lamar University in Beaumont in the bust of Mirabeau B. Lamar and large outdoor installations such as at the Beaumont Public Library.
In Longhorn Rider, Cargill demonstrates his talent and Texas roots in one of his finest, most playful works. Cast in bronze and standing over seven feet tall, the longhorn and the precariously-perched cowboy are an homage to the wild side of Texas and its cowboy past and present. While symmetrical and balanced, the sculpture is a free-wheeling work that captures the instant the cowboy and the longhorn are about to part company, with the longhorn getting the best of his rider.
With a nice, rich patina, this work is 72 inches wide and 88 inches at its highest point of the longhorn's flailing tail that has snared the cowboy's hat. Longhorn Rider exudes a feeling of motion and danger while evoking the cowboy image in artistic form.
Purchased from the sculptor in 1983.
