Buffalo Hunt #40 (Limited Edition) though he never saw an actual buffalo hunt, was enamored of the excitement and created many paintings of the subject. This one was controversial in that the owner’s wife didn’t like seeing a dying calf, which Russell eventually painted out, something he rarely did once finished. To any other criticisms, his reported response was that he had painted it how it really was and if they didn’t like it they could send it back.
