As a fan of Charlie Russell art, I had seen the info on this Catalog Raisonne and thought it was just another book on Charles M Russell. There are many, many books on him and his marvelous western art.
Once I foujnd that this book holds a real "key" to view virtually every art item ever produced by Charlie, I bought it as a family gift.
Upon arrival, I discovered the "key" is a coded registered web site unique to each book that creates access to each Russell item.
When the book arrived I was transfixed for several hours of viewing paintings. Some I had never seen and I have been to most of the Russell museum collections.
This is the finest book I own. The O U Press, Byron Price, and the various Russell collections and experts cooperated on this volume to be like no other book that I am aware of today.
If you enjoy western art from any vantage point, be it art, history, Indians, horses, cowboys, western, scenery, animals, color, or just the total joy of appreciating the vastness of this man's knowledge and ability to create art and preserve a slice of time--this is the book for you!
Images of the Lewis and Clark trip to the famous Kit Carson to Rocky Mountain hunting to Indians to cowboys and cattle---it is ALL right here. All indexed with wonderful commentary and details about Russell.
Buy this book for yourself or a gift--it will be enjoyed for years and you will never pass a computer screen again without thinking about viewing some Charlie Russell art today--right now!

Deftly compiled and edited by B. Byron Price (Director of the University of Oklahoma Press, as well as Director of the Charles M. Russell Center and Charles Marion Russell Chair of Art History, University of Oklahoma), "Charles M. Russell: A Catalogue Raisonne" is a superb collection of paintings, sketches, sculptures, illustrated letters, and stories by one of the finest artists ever to record images of the American West. Featuring more than 200 color and black-and-white reproductions of Russell's most famous works, "Charles M. Russell: A Catalogue Raisonne" includes informed and informative essays by Brian W. Dippie (Professor of History, University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada); Peter H. Hassrick (Director o the Institute of Western American Art, Denver Museum of Art); Rick Stewart (Senior Curator of Western Paintings and Sculpture, The Amon Carter Museum, Forth Worth, Texas); historian and actor Raphael J. Cristy; collector and Russell authority Ginger K. Renner; and B. Byron Price. A core addition to personal, academic, and community library American Art History reference collections, "Charles M. Russell: A Catalogue Raisonne" is especially recommended to the attention of scholars, collectors, curators, art dealers, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the life and work of Charles M. Russell.

Format: Hardcover
This is a superb volume for Russell fans and most others who appreciate the art of the late West. The writing about his oils, sketches, wax figurines and bronzes is well illustrated with appropriate art work in each section. There are many clues as to where you can find his life efforts today. The Fred Renner chapter was a delightful surprise. Wife Nancy's contributions are detailed. It is a good read without the snob verbage more typical in the art world of the elite. I believe Charlie Russell would have liked it this way.

I am a very particular collector of books. My library is so stuffed with art books that I now buy only the most definitive, latest work on an artist. No interest at all in coffee table books filled with a few images. That being said, I come to the purchase of a catalogue raisonne with certain expectations. The whole point of a CR is to gather in one spot (or at least attempt to) a full list of known works by the named artist in a given medium. At the very least, CRs should have an organized list of and photo of EACH item accepted to be by the artist. The best CRs are organized chronologically or, occasionally by subject. The best ones also give information about the ownership history, exhibition history, etc., about each piece. I bought the book several months ago because i occasionally appraise Russell paintings and sculpture. I just spent several hours trying to get at the heart of the organization principles for the authors and frankly, I am baffled. I opened to the index to look for the comprehensive list of paintings. I am working on an appraisal of two paintings that are certainly by Russell. I was just hoping to place them in context with other paintings done in close years and perhaps get more background on the provenance of the works. There is no comprehensive listing of paintings. There are several intriguing essays on Russell's life and work but this book fails the main function of a CR, in my opinion. The titles of the paintings I was looking for were not listed in the book index. Pictures, no. These two pieces were not minor, not in question at all. And yet they are not listed in the printed version of the book. Yes, my book does have my key code that links to an internet CR of the artist. And, yes, I did find my paintings on this list.Read more ›
