Our latest project for the Amon Carter Museum of American Art is Charles M. Russell: Watercolors, 1887–1926, the first comprehensive history of the cowboy artist’s watercolors. Russell created over a thousand watercolors during his long career, offering a rich range of work for scholarly study. This book reproduces many of those paintings, as well as sketches, illustrated letters, and archival photographs. Dr. Rick Stewart, a leading Russell scholar, contributes the main essay for the book. A second essay by conservator Jodi Utter provides a scientific examination of Russell’s watercolor techniques and materials.
