SOLON HANNIBAL BORGLUM (1868– ), American sculptor, was born in Ogden, Utah, on the 22nd of December 1868, the son of a Danish wood-carver. He studied under Louis F. Rebisso in the Cincinnati art school in 1895-1897, and under Fremiet in Paris. He took as his chief subjects incidents of western life, cowboys and Indians, with which he was familiar from his years on the ranch; notably " Lassoing Wild Horses," " Stampeding Wild Horses," " Last Round-up," " On the Border of White Man's Land," and " Burial on the Plains." His elder brother, Gutzon Borglum (b. 1867), also showed himself an artist of some originality.
