Charlie Russell’s The Broken Rope highlights the 2024 edition of the Scottsdale Art Auction

A rare and important oil painting by Charlie Russell, The Broken Rope, highlights the Scottsdale Art auction’s latest two-day sale, set to take place April 12–13, 2024, in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. The Broken Rope, one of only a handful of Russell oils to come to market over the last decades is expected to bring between $5–7 million.

The auction also boasts Russell Bronze’s A Bronc Twister (est. $200–300 thousand) and Frederic Remington’s The Cheyenne (est. $100–500 thousand). On the historic side of the market, the auction has an extensive offering of material from the Taos Society of Artists, including multiple pieces from Joseph Sharp and Eanger Irving Couse.

Other historic paintings of note include Maynard Dixon’s Pima Indian, Arizona, 1940 (est. $55–75 thousand), William R. Leigh’s Pack Trip (est.$250–450 thousand), and Winold Reiss’ Indian Madonna (est. $25–35 thousand).

The Scottsdale Art Auction has always found success in paintings by members of the Cowboy Artists of America, and this year should be no different. Included in this year’s sale are pieces from early members of the group, such as John Ford Clymer’s Clearing The Palo Duro (est. $175–275 thousand), Tom Lovell’s Cottonwood Gazette and oil study (est. $200–300 thousand), and Frank McCarthy’s Warriors Return (est. $20–30 thousand.) Also included will be works by current members of the CA, including a pair of Martin Grelle’s; Distant Signal (est. $150–200 thousand) and The Challenge (est. $150–250 thousand)

The auction will also include works by some of the most in demand Western artists working today, including Mark Maggiori, Logan Hagege and Kyle Polzin. Additionally, it will include works from G. Harvey including Tracks Below the Rim, Boot Top Crossing, and Memories of Manhattan.
