Wonderful artwork. You might also like to visit the Woolarock Museum in Bartlesvill,OK. They have some excellent Western art including the famous painting Trail of Tears. It is located on the ranch of Frank Phillips, founder of Phillips 66.

It's been 40 years since I visited that museum, but it is so memorable. Loved the Fredrick Remington sculptures and I fell in love with Gary Cooper from his portrait dressed as a cowboy that hangs gallantly on the walls of this museum. Love the first photo you showed us especially.

My family visited the museum when I was a teen. It was one the only cross country trip my parents ever did with me - visiting family in Illinois.I remember that I loved it then, but it was about 50 years ago.

I also visited the museum as a teen on a cross-country trip with my family, exactly 50 years ago. It makes me wonder if we might have crossed paths! It was very impressive and informative. Western art was a bit of a novelty to me at the time as a Michigander. About eighteen years ago I was fortunate enough to be able to buy a vase decorated with horsehair and a beautiful painting by Del Iron Cloud (in Rapid City, South Dakota) that I enjoy very much. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos, Geebart, and giving me a nice trip down memory lane!

Thanks- my friend and I have talked about a road trip to Bartlesville - visit Ree Drummonds store and I think there is a tall grass prairie there.
