Customer Question
I have a photo...

I have a photo that was taken by ***** *****, famous painter and it is dated back in 1800's or early 1900's. it has my grandfather in it branding cattle and a painting was supposedly done by Russell of this photo. how can I find the value of it and also verify that a painting was done.? thank you

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

My grandfather was raised in the area that Russell lived most of his life and the ranch that it was photographed on was belonging to a Cy McCormick who is also in the photo.

that was all there was with the picture. in doing research of Mr. Russell, it is all in the realm of where he did his work and photos and also same time period of my grandfathers life. This photo was passed down to my father and then to me with the story attached.

I am afraid I do not have good news for you on this!

I have gone through the entire existing catalogue raisonne for Charles Marion Russell, as well as 818 auction records. This image is not among his known existing works.

This does not mean that an oil painting, watercolor, or sketch was not made at some point from this photograph. It just means that it did not survive to the modern era to be recorded (most likely), or it's hidden away somewhere still in a private collection and was never recorded (fairly unlikely).

Given how prolific he was with watercolors in particular, and how fragile watercolors are, and how widely he traveled in the less civilized areas of the country, it's certain that many of his works were lost in the first quarter of the 20th century.

I apologize that the information you seek is not available.

I don't doubt the story, as he's done quite similar compositions. I honestly just think it was likely a watercolor and likely lost to time.
