Charlie Russell Early Portrait

Meet Charlie

Charles Marion Russell (1864–1926) masterfully captured the art and soul of the American West as it was transforming before his eyes. While he fulfilled his dream of an authentic cowboy life in Montana, he was also gifting the world with an inspired visual record celebrating Indigenous culture, Western narratives, grand landscapes, and majestic wildlife scenes. While his art is considered historic, his spirit is timeless.

The Artwork of Winold Reiss

In 1920, Winold Reiss made his first trip to the Blackfeet Reservation of Browning, Montana, to fulfill his long-held goal to paint Indian portraits. Although reluctant to pose for him, Reiss made it clear to the Blackfeet that he wanted to help future generations remember the greatness of the Blackfeet Nation. Visit the C.M. Russell Museum this summer to see a selection of portraits of the Blackfeet Nation that Reiss produced in his lifetime.
