Sid Richardson Museum: Stunning Depictions of the Early American West

Sid Richardson wasn't an artist himself—he was actually a Texas-born oil tycoon—but he did appreciate the raw artwork of Western artists in the 1940s and '50s. Over the course of these decades, Richardson devoted much of his fortune to art depicting the untamed West. Just before his death in the '80s, the Sid Richardson Museum opened to showcase the pieces of art.

To this day, it carries on Richardson's legacy in Fort Worth by maintaining and adding to his collection. It highlights masterpieces by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, two artistic trailblazers in the world art inspired by the American West. Other artists in the mix include Frank Tenney Johnson, Oscar E. Berninghaus, and various other Western art enthusiasts. Head to this Fort Worth museum if you want to see what your city, and those surrounding it, looked like in years past.
