The Carter has loaned seven of its over three hundred works by Charles M. Russell to the artist’s first major retrospective exhibition since his death in 1926. The Masterworks of Charles M. Russell will be on view at the Denver Art Museum through January 10, 2010; from there it travels to the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
