a045t.jpgDESCRIPTION: New unstated FIRST EDITION, hardcover with dj, Charles M. Russell, Word Painter: Letters 1887-1926, edited by Brian W. Dippie, Amon Carter Museum, c. 1993, distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc. The most comprehensive collection of Russell's correspondence ever assembled. Letters to his wife Nancy, to patrons and fellow artists, and to the saloonkeepers and cowboys who remained his friends for life reveal a surprisingly modest man. Russell downplayed his own verbal skills, but his letters show that he was an artist with words as well as paint, able to evoke a bygone era or make a shrewd social observation in a few well-chosen sentences. Each letter is reproduced in facsimile, allowing readers to see, in the artist's own handwriting and with his inimitable spellings and punctuation, how Russell cleverly interwove colorful sketches and eloquent words to form a memorable whole.
