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.
