    Encounter five exhibitions by four intriguing artists during "An American Season" at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The work of Maurice Prendergast, John Singer Sargent, Alice Neel, and Charles M. Russell comes together in a uniquely American gathering of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and more. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) presents the exhibition The Masterworks of Charles M. Russell: A Retrospective of Paintings and Sculpture (Part of An American Season), on view June 6 - August 29, 2010 at the Audrey Jones Beck Building. 

    A painter, sculptor, and humorist of the American West, Charles M. "Charlie" Russell (1864-1926) is familiar to millions around the world. Virtually self-taught, Russell began to paint early in his career as a cowboy. Later on, as a full-time artist, he provided inspiration to Hollywood´s first filmmakers. With first-hand knowledge of cowboys and outlaws, trappers and hunters, Native Americans, and Western wildlife and wilderness, Russell presents an uparalleled view of a bygone American culture, rich in authentic detail and infused with personal passion.

    This first major retrospective of Russell´s work illustrates that his variety of subject matter and range of expression reveal a much more complex artist than typically recognized, one who was in many ways dedicated to depicting the marginalized peoples—outsiders, prodigals, those on the fringes of society—of the time.
