Charles M. Russell by Larry Len Peterson
Book DescriptionCharles M. Russell????????????????????????cowboy, painter, sculptor, writer????????????????????????was an advocate of the people, animals, landscapes, and ideals of the West. Perhaps most importantly, he was an archivist. Through his detailed and honest paintings, sculptures, line drawings, and prose, he memorialized the Western way of life as it was at the turn of the twentieth century. Far from romanticizing the West, Russell's art captured the harsh and beautiful reality of the everyday world he lived in. Russell was one of those rare artists who was famous during his lifetime. Most books about Russell focus on his masterpieces, but Charles M. Russell: Printed Rarities from Private Collections examines the lesser-known but ubiquitous commercial works that made him a household name. These magazine covers, postcards, calendars, cigar boxes, ink blotters, letterheads, and artifacts are today some of the most highly sought after Russell memorabilia.

This biography makes use of hundreds of images of Russell, many never before published, to explore the role of photography in shaping the artist's public image and the making and selling of his art. More than that, the book shows how the Cowboy Artist personified what he portrayed.
