Description

Take Two: George Catlin Revisits the West features 17 paintings from George Catlin's Cartoon Collection portraying the cultural life of the Native Americans he encountered in his travels in the 1830s. The Exhibition features 4 rare Catlin illustrated books and Buffalo Hunt, a bronze sculpture by Charles M. Russell. A selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection, by Frederic Remington, Charles. M. Russell, and others, is also included.

"Catlin's art is a natural fit for The Sid Richardson Museum, since Charles Russell and Frederic Remington, two of the most prominent artists in our permanent collection, also devoted themselves to Western themes, with a great awareness of what was unfolding in the West during their lifetime. Catlin...painted anticipating a time in the future when the manners and customs of the American Indian would be lost. Remington and Russell...painted with a sense of nostalgia for a West that was then passing or had already passed."  - Mary Burke, Sid Richardson, Museum Director

Excellent collection of American Western art...small enough not to overwhelm but large enough to give a good sense of the old west. Friendly staff. Convenient location.

A nice, slightly unknown treasure in the midst of a major downtown area. Always a joy to visit.

A Sundance Square must visit site! World class artwork. One of the best venues to see Frederic Remington and Charles Russell's original artwork including 5 of Remington's famous nocturne paintings. Great location in the heart of all the downtown action.

Small gallery packs a huge punch and the gallery guide is informative and beautifully written. Free admission and don't miss the 2nd Saturday live performance at 3 pm by docent Roberta Adkins as the wife of Charlie Russell. The staff is friendly and the store has something for everyone. I always bring my out of town guests here and they love it!

Located in the heart of downtown in Sundance Square, the Sid Richardson Museum is one of Fort Worth's hidden gems. They have a great collection housed in a warm and intimate space. Always a delightful experience.

If you miss this show you will regret it. Displayed so that all can enjoy these wonderful paintings, many of which have not been shown, you will gain a greater appreciation of the growth of these talented artists over the course of their careers.

Still doing your Christmas shopping? The museum gift shop has gifts you won't find any place else. You can find something for those hard to buy for people on your list. Unique, classy, and definitely not overpriced! I love their western Christmas Santas! Sundance Square will definitely put you in the spirit of the season and make shopping enjoyable! I'm definitely going back again.
