Central Montana
Charlie Russell first came to Montana as a young man in the late 1800s, working as a cowboy and ranch hand. Although he loved this rough and dangerous way of life, Charlie also began honing impressive talents as an artist. He soon began drawing and painting the landscape and people of the region, capturing the lives of the Plains Indians and early explorers on canvas. His work has left a rich legacy for those interested in Montana's early history and Charlie Russell is now regarded as one of the foremost Western artists of his time. Learn more about the life of Charlie M. Russell. The way of life depicted in Russell's art is now gone, but the landscape remains much the same as it was in his time. The mountains and rivers of his paintings are still ready to explore and enjoy. Begin your journey by choosing activities, communities, or times of year to visit from the menu at left.
