Item Details
Description
EDWARD S. CURTIS. Favorite Cheyenne Costume, 1911. 7.2x5.1" image on 8.9x6.1" copper plate. Plate date 1912. From Volume 6, Piegan and Cheyenne, of The North American Indian. Engraved plate recto: Favorite Cheyenne Costume /From Copyright Photograph 1911 by E.S.Curtis.

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. 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 unique copper plate made for this publication under Curtis' supervision.
