Sale 38 Lot 1435

(1865 - 1926) American artist who specialized in western themes, most notably action scenes with cowboys and Indians. Rare signed copy of his 1925 book More Rawhides, Montana, 1926, boldly signed "C M Russell 1926" below his biography page in pencil alongside a hand-drawn cow skull with horns, the western artist's trademark. More Cowhides is an excellent collection of short stories about ranch hands, ropers, and other cowboy heroes, told from the perspective of Russell's main character, Rawhide Rawlins, with Russell's pencil-drawn sketches accompanying each story. A rare piece from one of America's favorite artists and storytellers. Slight yellowing and wear along edges, slight brittleness, else fine.
Estimate $ 1,500-2,000
