C. M. Russell
I just acquired a 12"X20" piece of wood with C. M. Russell's "A Doubtful Visitor" on it. I assume it is a print that has been attached to the wood. Some of it is wrinkling off of the wood. Does anyone know how to repair that? Also, does it have any value besides my affection for it?

Trying to determine artist
I inherited what I assume is a water color of what appears to be of an unknown calvryman seated at a table with a bottle of wine, smoking a cigarette. The uniform is all red with white cuffs/collar & buttonline. The eppalets appear to be white. Hes wearing boots with knee high shin guards. The signature is a circle with two C's, the first in reverse and the second regular, with a dot inbetween, from a distance it looks like an X or a fancy H. Also the painting date is 1900. My husbands great uncle was a general who owned. I would really like to know anymore info on this artist. Thank you.

I bought a CM Russell print in the original matting and frame.

Is it worth more then the $20 I paid for it?

"Lost" Charlie Russell Drawing
I'm looking for a very special pencil drawing done by Charlie for my dad when my dad was just a kid.
What makes this drawing special is that it was DONE ON THE BACK OF one of my dad's grade-school Thanksgiving art assignments.
[[*]][[*]][[*]] This particular drawing of Charlie was of INDIANS WAVING A GREETING TO SAILORS ABOARD A SHIP. ...and was a casual lesson/response to my dad's drawing of the same Indian-European meeting.
My dad was a young friend of Charlie's (Charlie used to sit in the seating section reserved for the engineer's family ...my granddad was the engineer). My dad was himself drawn to art while sitting on Charlie's lap as Charlie drew during the ride. Dad subsequently took his own childhood art to Charlie for a critique. Charlie gladly obliged and always wove a story in with his critique.
Thus this Russell drawing was born. Most likely, the current owner of this original Russell drawing has no idea that the "real original" is young boy's drawing hidden on the backside of Charlie's drawing.
I am a fairly beat up Vietnam War infantryman (disabled) who would be hugely grateful to be able to see this drawing before I die. Can anyone out there please help me find this special Russell/young boy collaboration?

The Joy of Life with the revealing teepee flap...
We recently came across this copy of the bawdy Russell piece, that my uncle bought when I was 12 and we were on a trip in Montana. The seller made us swear we weren't locals before he would sell it to us.
He told us that Charlie's wife Nancy had destroyed almost every painting of his like this, but this one had been hidden in the Mint or the Silver Dollar Bar in Great Falls and survived.
We'd like to have it appraised, if someone can direct us to a good appraiser of Russell's work.

The size of my print in the original frame is 12" x 16. I was told that the value of my pring was around $200-250.

Piegan Squaw bronze
We have this sculpture and some Authentication papers stating it is #10 of 30 made. We know that the valuable ones from Roman Bronze Works in NY---so want to varify if ours is one of the 17 that have been held privately.

To - Craig
Ray (or Reg)Jackson

answer to Kenneth Klimpel
Dear Kenneth- I have 2 of cast bronze grizzley bears. They have a hump on the back of their neck. I have been searching the web for over 3hrs. Yours is the first mention of Russell bears I have found. I took mine to an antique store today. There were signed C. Russellalong the bottom of their back leg. They are in a sitting pose. The dealer thought they looked real, but admitted he was not an expert on the subject. They are sitting on small marble circles, very dark with light streaks in it. He was certain that the marble was old. I did find a place called
Bronze Gallery on the web which makes reproductions, but they started out in 1999. They also come with a small gold colored metal plaque
on the marble, which mine do not have. I purchased mine, I have 2, at an estate auction in 1981. I would really like to know thrie worth and when they were made. I will keep looking. They are small, about 3" highand the marble circle is about that in diameter. If yours are like mine, please email anything you may find out. It would be much appreciated. Sincerely,
I have a water color print by cm russell dated 1899. Its a profile of an indian head. But i can find it anywhere.
russell bronze of will rogers

I have had this in our family a very long time and never gave it much thought as to worth. But I am sure it is old and possibly an original.
Any thoughts, any one?

That one is dated 1878 or 1898 I can't really tell which but I belive it is the later. Anyone have any idea about these prints and what they are called?

How do you know original versus print
I have a painting dated 1918, sign by CM Russell, with a steer skull under signature. The front of the picture is a single man riding a horse carrying a rifle with background of picture having several horses packed with furs or gear. How can I tell if this is an original or print?
My grandfather cowboyed with Mr. Russell in Montana. I have inherited 2 paintings. Not sure if they are originals. He never said one way or the other. One says to Eaton from his friend cm Russell.
Mr. Russell also gave my grandfather a sketching signed by him, but it was misplaced many years ago.
Would anyone know how to determine if these are originals? Thank you

Charles M. Russell
Determining authentic bronze CMR Sculptures - if it is mounted on a marble base, it is almost certainly a recast. Examples of popular recasts can be found online.
Charlie's wife was Nancy Cooper Russell (1878 - 1940), NOT a Native American, and they were married Sept 9, 1896. Nancy was only 17 when she met CMR in 1895.
MANY of Russell's original paintings were made available as fine quality prints on canvas and then overlaid with gesso to simulate brushstrokes. Small dots are the giveaway to these works and a jeweler's loupe of 10x will show these lithography marks quite well. Because of the popularity of Russell's work, it has been widely copied and reproduced worldwide.

I cannot find another picture exactly like this anywhere on the internet by him.. is it rare? It has 2 native americans on horseback on right running, buffalo in center with a calf in the lead almost and 3 native americans on right running. Anything anyone can tell us is greatly appreciated.

Need help to date
I bought an oldish charles Russell " the texas Steer"
There is no foundry mark on it but it has the usual russell initials and steer head. It is mounted on a very heavy green marble base, which I removed to see if there were any marks. The brass old plate on the base says simply "By Russell" I have a hunch this was done or sold in NYC around the late 60's or early 70's. Does anyone recognize that kind of base and who sold it. Both Tiffanys and some man whose name started with H did castings about that time. It clearly is not new and just as clearly is not marked with a foundry mark Help. Thanks.

Looking for info on a small bronze bust,bank.
It is of c. russell, on the back it says central bank of montana. On the side it says c. dennis 1962. I talked to a lady in montana at the bank who said this was a promotional item for the best customers of the bank, and it was a very limited production item.
It is about 7 inches tall
4 inches wide, 3 inches deep, with a locking mechanism on the bottom to put money in. any info
will be greatly appreciatd. thanks Cliff.

Where is this painting?
"Indian Maid at [the]Stockade" is one name that has been used.
The Montana museum was unable to help.
Any suggestions or leads will be welcome.
