Sid Richardson Collection of Western Art

309 Main Street
Fort Worth, Texas

Phone: 817-332-6554 -- 888-332-6554

Statement of Purpose:

Permanent display of 60 paintings and bronzes by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell from the collection of Sid Richardson, oilman and philanthropist.

Richardson's love for western art grew out of his personal experience in ranching and its relationship with his own impressions of the Old West.

In Remington's and Russell's paintings he found much ot the vitality and motion he always associated with his West.

Born in Athens, Texas, in 1891, Richardson attended Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene and Baylor University at Waco before entering the oil business at age 22. Thereafter, oil, cattle and land formed the base of a career that paralleled the boom-and-bust nature of the petroleum industry in the 1920's and 30's.

Since l982, his collection has been housed at the Sid Richardson Museum in an authentic replica of an original 1895 building, located in historic Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth. The site for the museum was chosen for its convenience to downtown visitors and workers as well as for its historic compatibility with the area.
