Charles Marion Russell (American, 1864-1926),
2009, American Indian & Western Art , September 11
The Brave
watercolor on paper
signed l.l.
11" x 9"

While Russell was known for his whimsical letters with illustrations and sweeping Indian scenes on the Great Plains, he did in fact execute numerous bust-length portraits of American Indians. The few that were dated were all executed between 1899-1902, when Russell must have had people posing. They tend to be robust, serious figures, many with the same composition. While this example is not dated, it is assumed to have been painted in this period.
