Thanks for your post
Excellent links Slatten49! I have always loved Remington's and Russell's works of art.
Thanks, Slat, for your efforts...you compelled me to learn the difference 'twixt the artist and the firearms maker.
Didn't know he was related to George Washington and Jim Bridger.
Thanks, Slatten. I love western art. I grew up in Montana and graduated from C. M Russell High. We had gone to his home and studio in Great Falls many times and to the museum of western art in Helena with has both Remington and Russell original paintings and sculptures. For anyone on OPP who is blessed to go to Glacier Park some day, make sure you take a day to spend in Browning which is the center of the Blackfoot Indian tribe.. They have several museums there which includes the Robert Scrivner museum in Browning, Montana, which is worth a side trip to see. You can also purchase replicas of his many sculptures there or order them online.
