Drawn from the Yellowstone Art Museum’s extensive permanent collection of Will James’ work, Women by Will features works on paper, first edition books, and memorabilia depicting women and girls by Joseph Ernest Nephtali Dufault (1892-1942), a.k.a. Will James. More than 30 never-before-exhibited drawings depict cowgirls and rugged frontier women shooting rifles, riding broncs, posing on log fences, and strolling down city streets by the celebrated author and cowboy artist.
These drawings, like all of James’ work, combine Western myth with the artist’s personal experience, with many of the women based on his wife Alice. Most of the works have never before been shown.
