Jeff and Dale I am just getting into the western artist and I do like Remington since he was the first one I noticed. I will have to look up Charlie Russell's work and have a look at it so I can enlarge my tastes LOL.
I love the cover art on your book Alan. Looking forward to seeing the book out in stores so I can a copy of it.
Yes they are and for the reasons you stated Dale.
Don't get me wrong, thy are both great artists and technically Remington surpasses Russllin any number of ways, but his version of the West was highly romanticised, whereas Charlie's work feels more raw and authentic at least for me.............but like you say they are both brilliant
I favor both Charles Russell and Mr. Remington's work
There is a ton of great western art, my own favorite is Charlie Russell's work, his body
of work is unsurpassed in it's ability to portray a story and the swirling action that was the
old west, and although there were other great artists of that era , most notably Remington,
I will take Charlies work simply because he depicted the truth of a story.
I am honored to be called distinguised, but I think you may have me mixed up with Allen Russell from Livingston, MT. Allen and I got to know each other many years ago, when we were both guiding big game hunters in Montana. He is a talented photographer, and I tend to do broadcast video and write a little. He got to allenrussell.com first so I have to use www.allenrussellbooks.com
