CHIEF AMERICAN HORSE - SIOUX
Item Details
Description
  • Title: CHIEF AMERICAN HORSE - SIOUX
  • Artist/Source: FRANK A. RINEHART
  • Medium: PHOTOLITHOGRAPH AFTER RINEHART ORIGINAL SEPIA TONE PLATINUM PRINT
  • Date/Period: 1899
  • Dimension [INCHES]: 10 X 8
  • Origin: OMAHA
  • Annotations: NONE
  • Description:
  • This lot is a Dye Based Photolithograph, and is a meticulous restoration print, produced 'after' the original photograph. Rather than being a one-of-a-kind work, it is an open edition, non-commercial sheet-fed mechanical print, analagous to the process used for sheet-fed photogravures. The paper is a 200 GSM, 15 MIL, Matte, Double-Weight "Warm Tone", 100% Cotton Rag that is Light Fast and Acid Free. It is enclosed in a polypropolene, archival presentation pocket and reinforced before shipping.

  • German-American Frank Albert Rinehart, (February 12, 1861 – December 17,1928), was famous for his photography capturing Native American portraits of leaders and members of the delegations who attended the 1898 Indian Congress in Omaha. In 1885 he and his wife moved to Omaha, Nebraska and opened a studio in the Brandeis Building, where he worked until his death. In 1898 Rinehart was commissioned to photograph the Indian Congress held in conjunction with the Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition. Together with his assistant Adolph Muhr, (who would later be employed by the famous photographer Edward S. Curtis), they produced what is now considered "one of the best photographic documentations of Indian leaders at the turn of the century". Tom Southall, former photograph curator at the University of Kansas, Spencer Art Museum, praised the Rinehart collection as follows: "The dramatic beauty of these portraits is especially impressive as a departure from earlier, less sensitive photographs of Native Americans. Instead of being detached, ethnographic records, the Rinehart photographs are portraits of individuals with an emphasis on strength of expression".

    While Rinehart and Muhr were not the first photographers to portray Indian subjects with such dignity, this large body of work was widely seen and distributed, and had an important influence in changing subsequent portrayals of Native Americans. After the Indian Congress, Rinehart and Muhr travelled Indian reservations for two years, portraying Native American leaders who had not attended the event, as well as depicting general aspects of indigenous everyday life and culture. The collection of Rinehart Indian Photographs is currently preserved at Haskell Indian Nations University. Since 1994, the collection has been organized, preserved, copied, and cataloged in a computer database funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Hallmark Foundation. It includes images from the 1898 Exposition, the 1899 Greater America Exposition, studio portraits from 1900 and photographs by Rinehart taken at the Crow Agency in Montana that same year.
