Remington painting draws $5.6M at Nevada auction

Posted: Updated:

A Frederic Remington painting depicting U.S. Cavalry soldiers has fetched $5.6 million, and a Norman Rockwell painting featuring a Boy Scout has drawn $4.2 million at auction in Reno.

Mike Overby of the annual Coeur d'Alene Art Auction says Remington's "Cutting Out Pony Herds" and Rockwell's "A Scout is Loyal" were sold to private collectors on Saturday.

Remington's painting features a soldier charging across the plains on horseback with the rest of the Cavalry following behind. The painting was done in 1908, a year before he died.

Rockwell's 1940 painting has a patriotic theme with a Boy Scout standing in front of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Some 600 bidders took part in what's billed as the world's largest Western art sale.
