Against the backdrop of social and political reform of the early 1900s, Nancy Cooper Russell was a woman ahead of her time. A self-taught business woman with the ability to take charge, Nancy helped Charles M. Russell become the era’s highest-paid living artist. Art historians consistently give her credit for being the reason the world has the extraordinary Russell paintings and sculptures that grace gallery and private collections today. Bradbury brings Nancy to life to share the story of her chance meeting with the Montana cowboy artist who would become her husband, about the world of art that celebrated the myth of the West at the beginning of the 20th century, about the renowned artists and celebrities the Russells knew as they traveled from New York City to the growing California suburb called Hollywood.

Come listen to this amazing speaker tell us the story of a remarkable and historical woman!
