EDWARD CURTIS Apache Medicine Man 1907 Icon
Item Details
Description
EDWARD CURTIS. Apache Medicine Man, 1907. 5.2x7" photogravure on 9.5x12.5" Holland Van Gelder paper from Volume I of The North American Indian (Navaho & Apache). Printed below image on print recto: Apache Medicine-Man / From Copyright Photograph 1907 by E.S. Curtis; inscribed in pencil in right margin: Printed 30 Full order Vol. 1.

The Apache Medicine-Man is one of Curtis most famous Salon Stye images from his earliest work taken when Curtis was at the beginning of his greatest photographic project.

Edward Sheriff Curtis (1868-1952) created a legacy that was a monumental visual tour de force, an ethnographic, heroic and theatrical record of the American Indian and their recollected and imagined way of life before the white man came. Between 1898 and 1928, working in collaboration with many tribal members Curtis created an ethno-historical account combined with photographic notions of character portraiture, environmental portraiture and classical romanticism as well as straight documentary views. He published 20 octavo volumes with around 75 prints per volume each accompanied with a larger portfolio of usually 36 hand pulled photogravures. THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN (1906-1928) is considered the most lavish and elegantly illustrated set of photographic books ever produced. This lot has the original vintage photogravure from this publication made under Curtis's supervision.
