Cowboy Overload in the Briscoe Western Art Museum in San Antonio, TX

In February, I attended the most fun reader/author convention ever put together – the Wild Wicked Weekend. After the wildness ended (and it was truly wild!) I got the chance to have a family vacation in San Antonio. We love to visit museums, and the Briscoe was my absolute favorite.

Here are some of my favorites from the museum. I enjoy Remington’s artwork, and the Briscoe has two of his sketches.

An Argument with the Town Marshall by Frederick Remington 1905

This one caught my attention because you can just imagine what the cowboys are thinking.

This painting is aptly named.

And Stay Off by Oleg Stravrowsky n.d.

My heart fluttered when I sae this painting. It’s so beautiful, and captures everything I love about cowboys in one slice of life.

I plan to attend 2016’s Wild Wicked Weekend, and I want to set aside a day to visit the Briscoe Museum to view all the pieces I missed, and those I want to see again. Besides paintings, there are many other forms of artwork: sculptures, basketry, dioramas, a spur collection, Pancho Villa’s saddle, Santa Anna’s sword, and so much more. I posted pictures of some of these on my blog, so jump over and take a look if you have a minute.

I hope you’re able to visit the museum some day. It made my trip to San Antonio very memorable.

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks so much for posting the pictures. I also love to visit museums, I had a wonderful time at the one in Harrisburg, PA with my grandchildren last year and hope to go back this summer. Unfortunately I very rarely travel these days so have to be content with local places.

  3. As many times as I have been to San Antonio I have never been here. Thank you for sharing and I have it on my things to do the next time I am in San Antonio. I am hoping I get to go there in April. We are supposed to have our girl and she has asked her grandfather to take her to San Antonio and Memie is all for that!!!!! Randi your the bomb!!!! LOL
