|Gift of Mr. and Mrs. S.H. Rosenthal, Jr.|
|This watercolor was done while Russell was working as a night wrangler in Montana. Cattle stampeding after being frightened by a thunderstorm may have been seen by Russell during his cowboy days. Notice the outstretched legs of the cattle. This unrealistic portrayal of running animals indicates that Russell painted this watercolor early in his career.|
