Cast from original molds by American artist Charles M. Russell (1864-1926), this bronze sculpture depicts a cowboy on horseback, his pistol raised above his head. The only sculpture in which Russell sold the rights of reproduction to, this dramatic piece of art has been faithfully recreated from Russell’s original molds and is suited for the western enthusiast or Russell collector. Russell’s cast signature is displayed at the base of the sculpture.
About the Artist:
Charles Marion Russell was born on March 19th, 1864 in St. Louis, Missouri and grew up with an avid fascination of the ‘wild west’ in his early years, eventually becoming a sheep rancher in Montana. Starting off as a cowboy, Russell began to document the winter of 1886-1887 in watercolors, which launched his career as an artist. His wife, Nancy, is often credited in helping him attain international acclaim as an artist, setting up shows throughout the United States and abroad. Russell produced about 4000 works of art, including oil and watercolor paintings, drawings and sculptures in wax, clay, plaster and other materials, some of which were also cast in bronze. He died in 1926 in the county seat of Great Falls, Montana.
