The Brinton is a small art museum at the base of the Big Horn Mountains. It was built by a rancher in the 1880s and converted to the museum in the 1960’s. The permanent collection includes E. W. Gollings, Frank Tenney Johnson, Remington and Russell, George Bellows and more. The grounds are beautiful, as well as the surrounding acres.
The current show that was hanging was titled American Impressionist in the Rockies. It’s the work of Fra ( pronounced Fray) Dana, a little known artist in Sheridan County at the turn of the century and artists she studied and painted with. It includes a portrait of Dana by William Merritt Chase, who she studied with and landscapes by Joseph Sharp and E. W. Gollings. The museum has several shows through out the year.
The Museum is worth seeing if your in the area, the surrounding landscape is worth the trip. You might enjoy seeing more paintings of women of the west. Here's a book that does that: Independent Spirits: Women Painters of the American West, 1890-1945
