The North American Indian by Edward S. Curtis is one of the most significant and controversial representations of traditional American Indian culture ever produced. Issued in a limited edition from 1907-1930, the publication continues to exert a major influence on the image of Indians in popular culture. The late Curtis said he wanted to document "the old time Indian, his dress, his ceremonies, his life and manners." At auction here is one of Curtis' Native American photographs which does just that. Bearing a copyright of 1900, the photograph of an Indian working on pottery measures roughly 7 1/2 x 5 1/2" and is intricately matted and beautifully framed to 17 1/2 x 15". This gorgeous piece will make a fine addition to any photography collection.
