Sioux Maiden 1908 Copper Plate
Item Details
Description
EDWARD S. CURTIS. Sioux Maiden, 1908. 7.3x4.6" image on 9x5.75" copper plate. Plate date 1908. From Volume 3, The Sioux, of The North American Indian. Plate recto engraved: Sioux Maiden / From Copyright Photograph 1908 by E.S. Curtis.

Curtis admired the indigenous crafts, and made many photographs that might be considered fashion, or style photographs of the time of men or women, boys and girls posing in their finest hand-crafted traditional outfits. Contemporary Pictorial photographers, like Edward Steichen, made soft focus views of socialites in the finest clothes. Curtis also made still life arrangements of baskets, pottery, hand tinted views of beaded shirts, moccasins and such, like the painters of his time and the product photographers of 20th century commercial photography. He had a studio-style set he used in the field to control the lighting. He was also a wizard at staging these views outdoors.
