American Paintings Depicting Native Peoples and Landscapes to Sell With Coeur d’Alene Art AuctionJul 23, 2022 15:00 EDT
Better known as “the cowboy artist,” Charles Marion Russell was associated with the American Old West frontier. The artist made over 2,000 paintings of cowboys and landscapes depicting Alberta, Canada and the Western United States. Russell’s Mexican Vaqueros Roping a Steer is a key highlight of the upcoming edition of the Coeur d’Alene Art Auction. The watercolor on paper illustrates an action-packed wildlife scene portraying cowboys. Such detailed paintings were possibly the outcome of Russell’s extensive cowpuncher studies during his visits to interior Mexico in 1906. Another artist renowned for his cowboy paintings, William Herbert Dunton, also leads the listings with his oil on canvas. Treed portrays two hunters, horses and hounds in a snow-covered forest. The hunters illustrated are most likely inspired by Dunton’s real-life hunting partners. Dunton worked as a cowboy and hunter for several years, and this influenced his wildlife art.
The sale also offers Edgar Payne’s Land of the Navajo. This oil on canvas illustrates the nomadic Navajos wandering through a rugged landscape. Payne skillfully portrays the vibrant colors of the vast land in the painting. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare and browse other online auctions.
