All the Details

One of the finest and most focused collections of Western art in America, the Sid Richardson Museum features paintings of the Old West by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell and other artists. The works, reflecting both the art and reality of the American West, are from the collection of legendary Texas oilman and philanthropist, Sid W. Richardson (1891-1959). Admission is free. "Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West" is a special exhibition featuring Catlin's paintings of the cultural life of the Native Americans, including thirteen that have never been shown in Texas. The Exhibition also features 4 rare Catlin illustrated books and Buffalo Hunt, a bronze sculpture by Charles M. Russell. A selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection, by Frederic Remington, Charles. M. Russell, and others is also included. "[Catlin's]...claim on the public’s attention was his conviction that Indian cultures were vanishing and would be known by future generations only through the visual record he was preserving. ... There is no body of artistic images of the Indians comparable to Catlin’s in terms of being early and influential because of his exhibitions and books." - Brian W.
