With over twenty five years of experience specializing in the original vintage photographs of Edward Curtis, including the valuation of the Edward Curtis Estate, Valley Fine Art is recognized as one of the premier experts in these important ethnographic works. This position of trust has allowed privileged access to the most sought-after images from the largest and most important documentation of Native American Tribes to this day.

Theodore Waddell (b. 1941)

Waddell’s paintings are a combination of rough marks; thick paint; transparent elegant strokes; and, on a few occasions a slow, hard line scratched into the canvas. You can feel the movement of the paint throughout the paintings, but the subjects are frozen. They are not frozen as a stagnant object but captured as a solitary image. 

Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952)

No photographer has rivaled the breadth and depth of Curtis’ exploration of Native American life, culture, and portraiture. The quality of Curtis’ imagery also remains unrivaled among any other photo ethnographic undertaking.

Juan Carlos Collada (b. 1966)

Inspired by nature, Collada is best known for his three-dimensional butterfly themed works, ethereal and graceful pieces that climb the walls and take on a life of their own. Collada carefully hand dyes and paints feathers for his butterflies.
