Where the West Rides Again One of the finest and most focused collections of Western art in America, this Fort Worth Museum features paintings of the 19th Century American West by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell and other artists. The works, reflecting both the art and reality of the American West, are from the collection of the legendary Texas oilman and philanthropist, Sid W. Richardson (1891-1959). Since opening in 1982, the Museum has been one of historic Sundance Square’s top attractions.

“Remington’s sculptures defy gravity! The connoisseurship level of this exhibition is as high as you can get with Remington.” – Dr. Rick Stewart Guest Curator
