Charles M. Russell: Photographing The Legend
By Larry Len Peterson. Hardcover, 328 pages, 344 photos.
Almost as familiar as the images he painted is the figure of Charles M. Russell himself. Standing or mounted, in boots and wide-brimmed hat, sash knotted at his waist, gaze steady under a hank of unruly hair: He is the one and only "Cowboy Artist." This biography makes use of hundreds of images of Russell, many never before published, to explore the role of photography in shaping the artist's public image.
