Paxson (also an artist and resident of Montana), and Russell’s close friend and first serious dealer Charles “Dutch” Schatzlein – owner of the Schatzlein Paint Company in Butte, Montana.? [Indian Head] Completed in 1904, the watercolor is signed by all three men. Schatzlein contributed the hair, Paxson the head and neck, and Russell the Pendleton robe.

Here Come the Saucy Riders: Women in Rodeo - Sid Richardson Museum 03/16/2022

Here Come the Saucy Riders: Women in Rodeo - Sid Richardson Museum

Here come the saucy riders,
Girls who are Texas born;
Who know the rhythm of riding
Over prairie sage and thorn
Watch how they cut and circle,
Canter and gallop and pace;
Each girl and horse united
In a flowing pulse of grace.
Surely such easy motion,
Free from strain or fear,
Comes only to those who are quickened
By the life of the pioneer. - “Girl Riders,” by Mrs. W. E Boswell, President, National Poetry League in “Poems of the West,” Rodeo Souvenir Annual, 1947

Check out our latest blog post to learn more about the women in rodeo through the lens of the 1947 @fwssr.

Millie in Montana - Sid Richardson Museum - Fort Worth, Texas

In 1907, Charlie Russell painted "Utica," also known as "A Quiet Day in Utica," a scene that is anything other than quiet.

Every figure in this painting is said to be identifiable, but today I want to focus on just one. In the doorway of the general store is the owner, Charles Lehman. Next to him on his right is an African American woman, Millie Ringgold, a freed slave and prospector in the area.

Millie Ringgold was a gold prospector, boarding house proprietor, and long-time resident of Yogo City, just down the road from Utica, Montana. How did this self-made businesswoman find her way to central Montana? Check out our blog to find out!

This work was a commission by the Lehman family, who had owned the general store in Utica, Montana. By this point, the family had moved to Lewistown and were wanting their former cu...

Happy Birthday, Peter Moran! - Sid Richardson Museum - Fort Worth, Texas

, SRM artist Peter Moran!

Like his famous brother, Thomas Moran, Peter was drawn to the West and traveled to that region on many sketching trips, resulting in paintings like "Indian Encampment," in the museum’s collection.

Happy Birthday, Peter Moran! - Sid Richardson Museum - Fort Worth, Texas Today is Peter Moran’s birthday. While his brother, Thomas Moran, has long been recognized as one of the premier painters of the American landscape, Peter Moran has received less attention, partly due to the lack of primary source material available.

Virtual TALL TALES
April 02 @ 10:30AM CST
Ages: 18+
Register - http://ow.ly/MCma50HWQn8
*First 10 households to register receive a free copy of the book!

One section of our current exhibit "Picturing the American West" highlights the roles of Plains Indian men and women, with many of the scenes depicting families moving camp or following the buffalo hunts. Though Charlie Russell painted these compositions over the turn of the century, their canvases portray a time period from long before. What was the reality of life in transition in the American West during the late 19th and early 20th centuries?

Join us for the next Tall Tales as we read and discuss Zitkála-Šá’s collection of essays in "American Indian Stories." Please read the selected book prior to the program.

Lakota for “Red Bird,” Zitkála-Šá was an influential Native American activist of the 20th century and co-founder of the National Council of American Indians in 1926. Writing for white audiences in the early 1900s, Zitkála-Šá’s American Indian Stories combines childhood reflections and the hardships endured in Indian boarding schools along with stories of allegorical fiction, revealing tensions between tradition and assimilation that characterizes much of her work.
