Russell original consigned to annual auction

Posted on 24 January 2017

The Russell Exhibition and Sale is in Great Falls, Montana, March 16-18, 2017.

Following the Buffalo Run, an original Charles M. Russell oil painting circa 1894, has been consigned to the Live Auction of The Russell: An Exhibition and Sale to Benefit the C.M. Russell Museum.

The painting features the gendered work of Indian women, who were tasked with following behind the men to harvest, prepare, and preserve the results of a successful buffalo hunt. It also highlights Russell’s use of a low angle lighting effect, casting the foreground in deep shadow so the key figure glows in the late afternoon sun.
