"In writing this book the author had only one end in view, that of relating in a simple way his experiences as a mountaineer. Life itself had little value in their estimation. They were pushing, adventurous, and fearless men, who thought nothing of laying down their lives in the service of friend, or often, it might be, only matter of humanity. Theirs was a brotherhood in which one man's life was entirely at the service of any its members, regardless of friendship or even of acquaintanceship."

"Beginning about 1825 the frontier artists of the American West helped shape the national identity through their collective images of the region. Following in their footsteps were Frederic Remington (1861-1909) and Charles M. Russell (1864-1926), who brought western art to its apotheosis, becoming, in the historian Robert Taft's phrase, "the most celebrated artists of the West."" "As young men, Remington and Russell struck out for the West, seeking adventure and self-identity. Remington stayed for only one year, Russell for the rest of his life. But both eventually became artists, and both took as their subject the disappearing West and its people. Different in temperament and style, they became the focal point of a manufactured rivalry that dominated the American art scene at the turn of the twentieth century and in essence pitted East against West. Camps of followers developed, and duels were waged on their behalf in the press, although neither Remington nor Russell directly engaged in the rivalry." "This volume, the catalogue for the exhibition Remington, Russell and the Language of Western Art, recounts the story of that shared limelight, its interplay and its tensions. It also explores who Remington and Russell were, how their art interacted, and why, despite their fundamental differences, they are so inextricably joined in the public's mind. Their depictions of the West and its people - Indians, cowboys, cavalrymen, and mountainmen - continue to define the West in the American imagination."--Jacket

Charles M. Russell : the life and legend of America's cowboy artist by John Taliaferro( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russell is known as the Cowboy Artist who saw it all and got it right. A rich kid from St. Louis, he left home in 1880 to join the big roundups in Montana, where he mixed with cowpunchers, Indians, preachers, and prostitutes. He memorized their stories and sketched their lives and, after the death of his rival Frederic Remington, became the foremost documentarian of the closing of the frontier. Before he was through, his masterpieces hung in America's finest art galleries and stateliest mansions. His paintings have appeared on three postage stamps, and his buffalo-skull logo still appears on every Montana license plate. In this, the first full-scale biography of Montana's favorite icon, John Taliaferro deepens and humanizes Russell's remarkable achievements. For once, the truth outdoes the legend. This is also the story of a nation in transition. Russell saw buffalo give way to cattle, horses give way to cars. He survived stampedes, blizzards, and firewater, only to face panics, jazz, and Prohibition. He blamed homesteaders, then robber barons, for ruining his West, but over time they became his most devoted friends and patrons. In his final years he was adopted by William S. Hart, Will Rogers, and Hollywood directors, and had a say in how the West would be immortalized on the silver screen. Charles M. Russell is one of America's most charismatic and complex icons. At last, here is a portrait that does him justice
