Author: ALDRICH, LANNING (EDITED BY) Title: The Western Art of CHARLES MARION RUSSELL.
Description: New York, Ballantine Books, 1975. 1st edition. Paperback, 23cmx28cm oblong, Good condition /Cover in color, Foreword by Vivian A. Paladin (editor Mantana): 'It is now clear that Charles Marion Russell himself did not realize how great a legacy he was to leave. Its richness is indisputable: he came to Montana just in time to see the passing of the frontier, and he had the talent and the instinct to record it. He came not to paint or sketch or model, but to live; he wanted to be a cowboy, not a famous artist. That he became both, and at precisely the right time, resulted in a body of art and literature whose universal value is impossible to overstate'. Charles Marion Russell (1864 - 1926), also known as C. M. Russell, Charlie Russell, and 'Kid' Russell, was an artist of the Old American West. Russell created more than 2,000 paintings of cowboys, Indians, and landscapes set in the Western United States and in Alberta, Canada, in addition to bronze sculptures. Known as 'the cowboy artist'. 45 fantastic full-page, full-color plates.
