During his lifetime, artist Carl Rungius (1869-1959) enjoyed a reputation similar to that of well-known western painter Frederic Remington. Though interest in his depictions of the wildlife and awesome landscapes of the west declines after his death, growing fascination with our wilderness heritage is bringing Rungius back into the public eye.Rungius tended toward realism in his depiction of wildlife, he did some commercial illustration work for the magazine Field and Stream and paintings for the New York Zoological Society, but he also experimented with contemporary brushwork. Though his training was European, Rungius worked to develop a palette that would better convey the striking contrasts of light and color peculiar to the mountains and praries of North America.The publication of this book coincides with a travelling exhibit created by the Glenbow Museum of Calgary, Alberta.
