Published by Little, Brown and Company. There is some writing in ink (someone's name and a small scribble) on front end paper. Taliaferro reveals the man behind the myth in his multifaceted complexity: extraordinarily gifted, self-effacing, charming, mischievous, and playful, a friend to rough frontier denizens and Hollywood stars alike. The author also explores Russell's controversial partnership with his fiery young wife, Nancy, whose ambition and business savvy helped establish Russell as one of America's most popular artists.

a016t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Unstated FIRST EDITION, Escape to Reality: The Western World of Maynard Dixon by Linda Jones Gibbs with an essay by Deborah Brown Rasiel. C. 2000 by Brigham Young University publ. New condition hardcover with dj. This book, lavishly illustrated with expansive color plates, centers on four texts examining very different topics. Gibbs begins with an account of the Dixon collection at BYU, then moves to a pair of essays exploring the reality, ideology, and abstraction at work in his images of Native Americans and the western landscape. In the final essay, photo historian Deborah Brown Rasiel grapples with the complex artistic influences at play between Dixon and his second wife, photographer Dorothea Lange. The resulting volume serves wonderfully as a visual, historical, and analytical history of an all-too-frequently overlooked artist.

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.

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.

Abrams Inc publ. in assocation with The National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution. Ex-library but a great condition hardcover with dj. Bingham was one of Missouri's and one of American's greatest artists. Raised in central Missouri, he lived as an itinerant painter in St. Louis and, as a mature artist, in Independence and Kansas City.

He also depicted social and political life of what was then still the frontier, preserving with timeless, classic dignity the features and spirit of the American democracy.
