A Sumptuous Collection
A sumptuous collection of Charlie Russell's iconic works is what it is, & it is truly a beautiful "coffee table" book offering a retrospective of Charlie Russell's paintings & sculptures. This beautiful work is entitled "The Masterworks Of Charles M. Russell" wonderfully edited by Joan Carpenter Troccoli with a foreword by Lewis I. Sharp & Duane H. King. I've developed a real interest & appreciation of Montana's own Charles Marion Russell after reading the Nancy Russell book during "Montana History" at the Marias Heritage Center. "The Masterworks Of Charles M. Russell" is an essential addition to the library of every aficionado of American western art. Readers, like myself, will discover the work of a man whose ideal vision of the American experience continues to stir the spirit nearly a century after his death. I encourage you to check it out. "The Masterworks of Charles M. Russell is available from online booksellers, in bookstores, & directly from the University of Oklahoma Press (1 800 627 7377 or www.oupress.com. I initially came across the book at the C.M. Russell Museum down in Great Falls. I WILL tell you this...once you pick it up, it is next to impossible to put it down! SPECTACULAR!!!
