the best painters of the American West was Charles Marion
Russell. He lived from 1864 thru 1926 and in his
lifetime, he created over 2,000 paintings of the western
part of America. These 2013 C.M. Russell calendars
show you some of the best paintings that he created.
His art is so valuable and in demand that a 1918 painting
that he did recently sold for over $5 million. He also
has a mural located in Helena, Montana of Lewis and Clark
meeting the Indians. C.M. Russell spent much of his
adult life in Montana and was an icon in the early 1920's.
This 2013 calendar doesn't show it, but C.M. Russell was
such a legend in those parts that children were allowed to
leave school to attend his funeral when he died.
