When Charlie Russell arrived in Montana in 1880, at age 16, he took a job as a ranch hand. Here on the Montana prairie, under the big sky, Russell became enamored with the dramatic scenery, wildlife and a wide-open prairie. Through Russell's drawings and paintings, this section of the West is well documented during the late 19th century. His work, now considered among the best of the western artists, depicted the plains Indians, early explorers, and some of the same spectacular scenery found in the Judith River Basin today.
