GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - The C.M. Russell Museum will offer a painting by Thomas Moran for sale during its annual benefit auction next year.

The Moran oil painting is called Castle Rock, Green River, Wyoming (1907). It is valued at between $3.5 million to $4.5 million.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/1MwzNUe ) that the previous record price for The Russell Live Auction was set this year, when Charles M. Russell’s “For Supremacy” sold for $1.5 million.

Moran was a British-born painter and printmaker who became one of the pre-eminent artists of the American West. In 1871, he recorded the glories of the area that Congress set aside in 1872 as Yellowstone National Park.

The annual exhibition and auction to benefit the museum in Great Falls is set for March 19, 2016.
