Known as “the Cowboy Artist,” Charles Marion Russell’s career spanned many decades and consisted of more than 2,000 works of art. The prolific artist gained gradual success during the late 1800s, when he lived the life of a frontiersman in Montana - although, he was originally from St. Louis, Mo. Russell worked odd jobs on farms until he began to gain notoriety for his art, which typically focused on life in the frontier. The artist lived closely alongside Native Americans for some time, which is where he gained much of the in-depth knowledge.
