Charles M. Russell's Favorite Horse Red Bird - Art Postcard

This is an art postcard by Charles M. Russell (1864-1926).  The postcard is copyrighted 1952, I'm not sure when the original art was created.  The back of the postcard contains a short biography of the artist.

Charles Russell captured 19th & early 20th century cowboy & western themes in his art.  Sometimes his subjects are humorous, sometimes brutal or dangerous.   I like this card because it's a very realistic & detailed drawing of a horse - Red Bird. 

We've listed several of Russell's "Cowboy Art" cards this week in our eBay store, and still have a few more to go.  They are very nice cards.
