Out of the Vault: W. Herbert Dunton’s “Fernando Roped One of the Bears and His Brother Caught Another”

Welcome to “Out of the Vault.” This is our blog series where we take you behind-the-scenes to show off our newest acquisitions and why we think they are an important addition to the Museum’s mission to tell you the diverse stories of the West.

Today Michael Grauer, McCasland Chair of Cowboy Culture/Curator of Cowboy Collections and Western Art, talks to us about the influential artist W. Herbert Dunton.

The Western Heritage Fund helps make acquisitions like this possible. The West is full of different cultures, peoples and stories, and you can help us share those stories.
