Exhibition - Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West

A selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection, by Frederic Remington, Charles. M. Russell, and others, is also included.

 

"Catlin’s art is a natural fit for The Sid Richardson Museum, since Charles Russell and Frederic Remington, two of the most prominent artists in our permanent collection, also devoted themselves to Western themes, with a great awareness of what was unfolding in the West during their lifetime. Catlin...painted anticipating a time in the future when the manners and customs of the American Indian would be lost. Remington and Russell...painted with a sense of nostalgia for a West that was then passing or had already passed."- Mary Burke, Sid Richardson Museum Director
