    All 7 Charles M Russell Prints are SOLD to @walnutwoodshop Thank You All for your interest!
    Thank You Chad for your purchase. Prints Mailing 2-12-18

    Do some research on Charles M Russell, this guy lived an incredible life and was an amazing artist.

    We found some Charles M Russell Prints in my uncles belongings. These are old prints, I can only guess the decade though from the info I found on the internet and who copyrighted them at that time. Neat prints, Best my aunt can remember is that these were on my uncles Boyhood ranch in South Dakota which was a terrible fight after the mother died and it was bulldozed for sale in land. Sad but she does not know how these got in a tube in my uncles closet. Where they have been a good 30 years since the ranch was sold. Sly old man.

    $15.00 each plus shipping, If you want to make a purchase pictures are in exact order listed. Any questions please feel free to ask. If you would like some more pictures of any print specific, just let me know.
    Thanks for looking.
    @Tony this look ok to you

    On a different note. My aunt let me pick one. I picked a large 1940 canvas print of "Tight Dally and Loose Latigo" The story of the painting is amazing. But I picked it, not cause it was the oldest or maybe a few dollars more valuable. cause my uncle was a heeler (calf roper) when he was a young man. Just behind the painting I put a pamphlet from his funeral services, and wrote the date and some info on the back of the cardboard for the frame. And all this made me think, my aunt is having to distribute his things in such a fashion that it would of been easier on her and the kids had he left a will. So folks do yourself a favor, If you want something to get to your loved ones. Sit down, write it up and get it notarized, and make sure everyone involved has a copy. I know I am going to the courthouse tomorrow. Time is guaranteed to know man. Some of us less than others, but sometimes having a few things to remember those we love, Well it can be all it takes to get through some hard times. And knowing me those dang hospitals could raid my place to pay my bills before I get unhooked and out of there room next time. HA!!! :rulz:

    The reprints by Brown & Bigelow were likely instigated by Time-Life books, either directly or indirectly. Time-Life published and sold their book series on the Old West from 1973 - 1980... Many, if not most of Russel's prints are pictured in the books.

    My Great gramps was a Photographer and market hunter. Russel and Zeke used to hunt- work and probably what they did most was drink together. Great Grandma lived to almost 100. She had such wonderful stories about both men. Wish I could have recorded stories. 1900 -great falls and Helena area was pretty wild country

    @Mike1950 That is really cool. I read a lot about him trying to figure out those prints and in most cases, he witnessed it. What a life.

    @ Rocky1 it says most of charles russell's prints that were reproduced by brown and bigelow
    These are some of the earliest prints of Russell's paintings—they were acquired by our founder, Fred T. Darvill, on a trip through Montana ... who was the paintings owner. and he may have set up something with Time Life but he actually stopped in Montana and bought the paintings and therefore the rights to reprint them is how I understand it.

    Yep- pretty Wild country. Great gramps Dad -"Cap" was a gold rush guy- led the wagon train to Emigrant Mt. for the first permanent settlement in Mt. - somewhere about 1865. His brother Ben came there in the army- and resides at Custer's last stand. even now eastern Mt. (Big Sky Country) is miles and miles of land with very few people.
