Active in the first half of the twentieth century, Carl Rungius established a reputation as the most important painter of big game and the first career wildlife artist in North America. An avid sportsman, Rungius spent more time in the wilderness than other artists. Direct observation in nature was necessary to enhance his knowledge of animals and their environment. Rungius painted both landscapes and wildlife. He situated animals in their natural environment - a practice that was new to painting in early twentieth century North America. --Glenbow Museum
