GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - The C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls has acquired two new Russell watercolors.

An anonymous donor gave $575,000 to the museum to purchase art entitled “An Indian War Party” and “Cowboy on a Bay Horse.”

The two new watercolor acquisitions will remain on special display in the museum through the end of the year, then will be incorporated into the permanent exhibition of Russell’s work at the museum.

Meantime, the museum announced its fundraising results of its 2015 benefit sale.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (http://gftrib.com/1InsUzM ) that the museum netted $1.3 million, from a record-breaking $7.8 million gross.

Last year, the event netted $1.4 million from a $6.19 million gross.
