Indian Family / Charles Marion Russell, 1864 - 1926 (Artist)

Essay/Description

Artist's original title is considered offensive, so the museum staff have given the artwork a descriptive title.

Curatorial Remarks

This bronze is one of two in a set of bookends, the other is Indian Family (Indian Man) (0837.21). It has no cast number. There is resin and wood inside the figure.
