Envisioned as a celebration of the West that was fast disappearing, the first Calgary Stampede included a daily parade, rodeo events and a special exhibition of 20 paintings by Charles M. Russell, the Famous Cowboy Artist.
Eminent Russell scholar Brian W. Dippie examines the impact of this exhibition on Russells career and describes why this single exhibition was an epochal moment in the history of Western American art. In addition, Glenbow Museum curator Lorain Lounsberry illustrates the importance of fellow cowboy artists Edward Boreins work in shaping peoples perception of the Calgary Stampede and offers readers a glimpse of Calgary back in 1912.
Filled with historical detail, iconic imagery and some of Russells most beloved masterpieces, Charlie Russell and the First Calgary Stampede is a unique look at an exhibition that influenced two artists careers and an event that shaped the identity of a city.
