Charles M. Russell Autograph Letter Signed Two pages, 5.5" x 7.75", April 27 (no year), in pencil. Russell writes to a Mr. Hill, in part: "A friend of mine Guy Wedick who managed the Stampede at Calgary last year, is going to pull of (sic) another this Summer at Winnipeg..." The letter closes "Yours Sincerely whether you do it or not, C. M. Russell". Russell was painter, sculptor, and illustrator, born in St Louis, Missouri. Growing up, he was fascinated with sketching and modelling cowboys, Indians, and animals. He went to Montana at age 16 and settled there working as a hunter and cowboy, and living one winter with the Blood tribe of Canada. He decided in 1892 to devote himself to art full-time. Entirely self-taught, working with oils, water colours, pen-and-ink, and clay, he captured the authentic drama and details of the classic American West. Fine condition, framed to 19" x 13" overall. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
