In 1866, Nelson Storey led the trail drive bringing the first herd of longhorns, like those depicted here, from Texas to Montana. Russell participated in several drives and, once again, his experience as a working cowboy makes for an authentic representation of the experience. Because few cowboys owned a compass, the general direction for the following day was set each evening by pointing the tongue of the chuck wagon toward the North Star. Now, during the daylight, the trail boss sits atop a small rise shown in the foreground and checks out the progress of the herd, having already scouted...

This was one of Russells largest and most ambitious paintings; he only painted five larger during his career. Amazingly, it was raffled off for $300 at the Park Hotel in Great Falls, Montana. Many art scholars consider it Russells finest work. It is noteworthy for its sophisticated composition and technical accomplishment, including his use of foreshortening in the painting of the rifle held by a trapper just to the left of the center, making the barrel of the gun seem to follow the viewer no matter where he or she stands in the gallery. Not only is this an advanced...

Perhaps because his father had been a cavalry officer during the Civil War, Remington venerated the U.S. trooper, once writing, "No man earns his wages half so hard as the soldier doing campaign work on the Southwestern frontier . . . " Many of his own trips to the American west were in the company of cavalry troops as they patrolled the Plains and fought a series of Indian Wars. This particular sculpture was one of his last, copyrighted in January of 1909, less than a year before he died. Again, it is an amazing feat of balance, with all...

Like the quintessential American ornithological artist John James Audubon, Elisabeth Paxton Oliver based her paintings of birds upon careful observation in the wild and further deliberation in her studio. Having once had a work refused for exhibition because of an incorrect number of wing feathers, she strove thereafter to be as specific as possible in her depictions. Local youth in Tryon, North Carolina, where she spent the last decades of her life, often helped by bringing her specimens for her detailed realistic watercolors of various species. While her work is represented in several museums including both the Norton and the...
