Item Details
Description
EDWARD S. CURTIS. Plate 16 Eskadi - Apache, 1903. 14.6x10" photogravure on 19x15.2" Japan Vellum paper hinged to 21x16.5" modern Rives BFK board hinged to 22x18" modern facsimile overmat. Print date 1907. From Portfolio 1Apache & Navaho, of The North American Indian. Printed on print recto: Plate 16/Eskadi - Apache / From Copyright Photograph 1903 by E.S. Curtis/ Photogravure John Andrew and Son.

Curtis wrote about this: "A headman of one of the bands, and a particularly fine Apache type."

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. His mastery of the grandest pictorial style and technique in his photogravures, orotones and silver and platinum prints that were rivaled only by the most elegant prints of Edward Steichen and Alfred Stieglitz. During this time, he was the most famous photographer in the country just as Ansel Adams later in the 20th Century.

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 America Indian (1906-1928) is considered the most lavish and elegantly illustrated set of photographic books ever produced. This has lot has original vintage photogravures from this publication made under Curtis supervision.
