Synopsis: He was a master painter and sculptor whose works have permeated the American scene like no other Western artist before or since. For the first time, C.M. Russell, Legacy tells the amazing story of the rise of Montana's cowboy artist to national prominence by presenting over a thousand illustrations of his published works, collectibles, and photographs.
From Library Journal:
Present-day admirers of the prolific Charles M. Russell's paintings and sculptures might be surprised to learn how often he transformed his Western themes into book, newspaper, and magazine illustrations. He further propagated his vision of the West, and supported himself, by producing images for calendars and postcards, advertisements, businesses and organizations, and souvenir pamphlets for events. Russell's spirit pervades this volume, much as his art permeated late 19th- and early 20th-century society. Peterson has compiled a colorful visual display of Russell's Old West, including proud Native Americans, bold adventurers, angry bears, starving cattle, buffalo skulls, round-ups, and hold-ups. The intertwining of Russell's personal and professional lives is discussed in detail. An important addition to other recent books on Western arts, this is especially recommended for collectors and librarians wishing to better identify printed Russell material.AAnne Marie Lane, American Heritage Ctr., Laramie, WY
