As a teenager, he began to draw and paint the cowboys, Native Americans, and wildlife that he saw around him. In 1885, at the age of 21, he decided to pursue a career as an artist and moved to New York City to study art, but soon found that the city's art scene did not align with his passion for the American West. His paintings and sculptures were characterized by their attention to detail and realism, and they often depicted the rugged beauty of the West, as well as the struggles of the people who lived there. He was also a storyteller and a writer, and he often wrote about the people and places he depicted in his art. He was also a passionate conservationist, and he used his art to raise awareness about the importance of preserving the natural beauty of the West.
Throughout his career, Russell received numerous awards and accolades for his art. He was elected to the National Academy of Design and the National Institute of Arts and Letters, and his work was featured in major museums around the world. Today, his paintings and sculptures are considered some of the most valuable and important works of Western art.His legacy as an artist and a storyteller continues to inspire people around the world.
