As an artist, Russell emerged at a time when the Wild West was of intense interest to people who lived in cities, and cattle drives were still being conducted over long distances. He painted images of the Old West that were later adopted by Westerners, which became a movie staple.

Charles M. Russell is an iconic name in the world of western art. Russell created more than 2,000 paintings of cowboys, Native Americans, and landscapes set in the western United States and in Alberta, Canada, in addition to bronze sculptures. He is known as “the cowboy artist” and was also a storyteller and author. Russell produced about 4,000 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.
