In Natural Habitat: Contemporary Wildlife Artists of North America, David J. Wagner wrote, “By the 1930s, Runguis’s work coalesced into a mature signature style that was vastly different from anything that had been seen in American wildlife art. True to his own calling, but shaped by the forces of modern art around him, Rungius extended himself and American wildlife art by reducing anatomical and topographical details to strokes of color and blocks of form and mass. His impressionistic plein-air paintings were perfectly suited to North American big game and the environment of the Canadian Rockies.”
