Depictions of wild animals comprise roughly a quarter of artist Charles M. Russell’s total production of paintings, drawings and sculpture. Even when animals are not the principal focus of a particular work, their presence is often palpable in the skins, horns, bones and effigies the artist added to many scenes in the interest of authenticity and allegory. Byron Price’s presentation will look at Russell’s animal art as a reflection of the artist’s world view, the ideas and values he embraced and the times in which he lived.

A lecture by Byron Price, Director of Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West at the University of Oklahoma.
