– Charles M. Russell
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 Mackay Collection
On temporary loan from the Montana Historical Society, this exhibition explored the friendship between Malcolm Mackay and Charlie Russell; resulting in one of the largest and finest collections of Russell masterworks.
A Collectors Vision
Every collector has a unique way of acquiring and collecting art. Whether they are artists, dealers, or art enthusiasts, collectors have influenced museums throughout history. Many art museums’ foundational collections came as a result of a donation by a collector.
