I was expecting local art. However, the collection includes work by Rousseau, O'Keefe, Bierstadt and the largest public collection of Carl Rungius, considered the "Old Master" of North American wildlife art. I was particularly taken by Rungius's work since he started his adventures primarily as a hunter.
If you can't get to Jackson anytime soon, take this virtual tour. Here are just a few things I particularly liked. I am so glad it snowed.
